    Changing text size in a program

    What coding is used to change the size of the text output in a program?

    I'm very new and haven't come across this in my book yet.

    I've tried using

    textsize(*);

    * being whatever size.

    I tried searching but did not find any info on this.

    I'm using Borland C++ 5.02.

    Thanx in advance!

    Do you mean ANSI to UNICODE? As in char to w_char?
    While you're breakin' down my back n'
    I been rackin' out my brain
    It don't matter how we make it
    'Cause it always ends the same
    You can push it for more mileage
    But your flaps r' wearin' thin
    And I could sleep on it 'til mornin'
    But this nightmare never ends
    Don't forget to call my lawyers
    With ridiculous demands
    An you can take the pity so far
    But it's more than I can stand
    'Cause this couchtrip's gettin' older
    Tell me how long has it been
    'Cause 5 years is forever
    An you haven't grown up yet

    I want to make the text bigger in the program.

    instead of the text being this size...I want to make it this size.

    Does that clear everything up?

    Depends on what you mean. It can't be done if you print straight to console, as far as I know (I don't see why you would need to anyway ). But if you were to do it in a GUI environment, it would depend on the toolkit you were using, and what functions it had available to it.
