    How To Execute In Full-Screen, Maximized, etc?

    Is there a library function that can be used to set the default console size for a program?
    Code:
    if( numeric_limits< byte >::digits != bits_per_byte )
        error( "program requires bits_per_byte-bit bytes" );
    24bbs.cpp

    The easiest way that I've found of have full control of how a console looks is using CreateProcess(), from another program and filling the STARTUPINFO struct with the desired values (you can set the exact screen size for the console like a windows app).

    Alternatively, you can set the size using SetConsoleScreenBufferSize() and SetConsoleWindowInfo().
