This is one of many projects resulting from boredom. I figured I would write my own starfield screensaver, except I have very little experience creating graphical programs. So, I decided to use ASCII art instead.
I used punctuation to represent stars (using both . and ` for double vertical resolution), and a couple different shades of grey for the effect, so even in a low-resolution terminal, the effect still looks pretty good.
Requires: perl, ncurses
