Controlling My Console ?

Hi folks!

i need a little help about how to control the height and width of the console when my application(console) is started.
I mean when my simple c++ code(e.g Helo world) starts its execution in the console, the Console should be resized to what ever dimension (height & width) i mentioned in my program; plz do tell me how to controll the dimension of my console...

Plz i need simple c++ code i.e. no MFC no Windows programming..
Its Linux Console..

Regards, JinBaba.

your consol size is contoled by your window manager not by a text based program that uses no grafical display.
