'Aewan' lets users create and edit ASCII art. Users move the cursor around with the arrow keys, "paint" characters by pressing the corresponding key, and choose foreground and background colors, and bold and blink attributes, with dialog boxes. They can also select, move, copy, and paste rectangular areas of the canvas. Aewan supports "intelligent" horizontal and vertical flipping (e.g., it converts "\" to "/", etc) and can work with multiple layers, turn transparency and visibility on and off for each layer, and change the order of the layers. Thus, each layer can be edited independently to generate a composite drawing. Layers can also be used as frames for an animation, thereby creating ASCII animations.
