    So you mean like:
    Code:
    for(int i = 0;i < 6;++i)
      cout << "Blah";
    Right?

    Do you mean the size of the font in pixel height?

    That does increase the size. Are you saying you'd like to append spaces to the end of "BlahBlahBlah" to make it take up 24 characters? Say what you mean.

    You can't modify the font of text in a console application.

    I don't think that's possible in a console application, easy on win32 though

    Yes. It is possible. You can interface with the console to produce several types of fonts and sizes. I don't know how to do it though. Its definitely non portable. console.h and windows.h are probably needed for windows based systems.

    But if what you want is to have on the same console session different fonts and sizes displayed at the same time, then you are in for a threat. You will need to enter graphics mode. Again, how this is done... I don't know.

    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I was assuming he only wanted a portion of text to be one size and the rest would be another size. I certainly wasn't going to try asking him to explain further

    Wow! What a wealth of info! I didn't know that, but now that I think about it it makes sense. I'm having visions of a program called 'Iris', which we used use in work to maintain till floats and whatnot in a small store i used work in, and I'm sure it was in gaudy colors with different size fonts.
