Changing font size


Hi.

Just wanted to know how to change the font size in C++ for a console. No X Server. Do we have to use ncurses, or is there any other way?

Thanks.

Font size on console it's a matter of user settings. The console your program runs on may be real - like alt+f1 or a terminal emulator like xterm, eterm and so on. The best way is to use ncurses or a similar library. Note: I've not seen a program that changes font in ncurses. I also don't remember an ncurses function to do it. But I may be wrong.
