Post Manipulating fonts from the command line

Hello all,

I would like to manipulate font size of a text file, preferably from command line, before printing it.. Any Linux tool you can suggest?

setfont if you're in cli. You get to choose from the (abysmal) selection in /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts
