## 1.6.12

### Fancy chapter heading for a book

To modify the header of a chapter you can use on of the predefined styles of the packagefncychap
In relation to your question I present a small example:
\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[Lenny]{fncychap}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Compiler Construction Tools}
\end{document}

As Werner mentioned you can also use the memoir class which also provides some styles. Examples can be found in the documentation of memoir (6.5.1 Defining a chapter style, p 83.)
