Largest screen buffer size?
When clearing the screen using the win32 console, with windows.h, there is a command called FillConsoleOutputCharacter and one of the arguments is how many characters to output. I noticed that for my particular monitor 4000 spaces clears the screen perfect. However, the tutorial that taught me how to do this also told me that some monitors have a 5500 screen buffer size...I was just curious as to what is the largest screen buffer size possible, so that I won't make it too small if my program is running on someone else's computer.
Either that, or a way to find out what size your screen buffer is...I've noticed that putting a higher number than what you need doesn't hurt anything, for instance, mine is 4000, but if I put 6000 it still works fine, so if I knew the largest possible, I'd just put that and know it would work fine on any comp....
Thanks as always, Ash
