  • A tweak using Patola's code as a base, this full-width green matrix display has all the frills (and all the printable characters). You don't need the surrounding parens if you don't care about losing globbing capabilities. Z-shell (/bin/zsh) needs neither the parens nor the `set -o noglob` Screen shot (animated): http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg32/scaled.php?server=32&filename=matrixh.gif&res=landing If it's too slow, try lowering the `sleep 0.05` or even replacing it with `true` (which is faster than `sleep 0`). I squashed it as narrow as I could to conserve space, though somebody could probably squeeze a char or two out. Enjoy!
