    how to increase text in the output

    Hi.


    I am on Windows 7, 64 bit; using Dev for compiling my C codes.


    Is there a way to increase size of a text output on the screen?


    Thank you.

    Apparently, you can use this -> SetCurrentConsoleFontEx function (Windows)

    If by 'dev', you mean dev-c++, then you need to upgrade your compiler.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I don't know how to use it. Is it something I should add as an external file? Or something I should write to the source code?

    (I am really a beginner)

    Dev-C++ can do anything. Is there a better one to use?

    For compilers, I would recommend one (or more) of these.
    Visual Studio Express 2012 Products | Microsoft Visual Studio
    smorgasbordet - Pelles C
    Code::Blocks
    Orwell Dev-C++ | Free Development software downloads at SourceForge.net

    I suggest getting a thorough grounding in standard C (or C++, whichever you're learning), before trying to tackle the intricacies of Win32 console programming.
