    Default does this exist?

    I thought popped in my head, actually a memory, from a movie where the "ghost" caused a printer to print pages of binary code. the "guy" laid them on the floor and when looked at from above, it made a face, and resembled the "girl" in the movie.

    so, my question is there any actual program, scan tool, etc that can do this? I can imagine the detail if the font size was very small.

    This is actually pretty common. It's called ASCII Art. Here's a link:

    http://www.degraeve.com/img2txt.php

    Also try this search:

    http://www.google.com/search?client=...utf-8&oe=utf-8

    or related search terms like:

    image to ascii

    or:

    gif to ascii

    etc.

    Purists however prefer to use a text editor.
