Hi,

Is it possible to display the output of a C program in different font sizes by setting it in the code? If yes, please guide regarding the same.

Thanks.

Depends, if you mean using the Win32 API, then it's easily possible. AFAIK it's not possible to set the font size on the console through just using C++ code.

There's not much point in recommending that, we first need to know some details before simply telling him to use a graphics library. If he's using the Win32 API, he can simply use CreateFont and use the returned object with the window HDC.

If he plans on doing this with a console window, then there's problems.

I am working on UNIX, and using CC to compile the code.

Wouldn't it be terminal dependent? something to do with termcap settings? (Just guessing, its been 15 or so years since I worked with *nix).

Then, i believe you can't use graphics library. Only for console applications.

Ok smartass if its so easy then prey tell us the answer.
