DIAGNOSTICS
       The output is centered for a 80 columns screen, so it can be used on
       most display easilly, and not found at execution time.

       alliancebanner: Error: Resulting size bigger than 80 columns not
       allowed
              The tool argument must be such that its resulting size isn't
              wider that 80 culumns.  This means, since the character set is
              proportional, that the longest name to be output is about 8
              characters long.
       alliancebanner: Error: Character out of [0-9A-Za-z] range
              The tool parameter has a non allowed character in it.  For
              simplicity purposes, only numbers and letters are accepted.
