You can change the size of the font, but you can't change the "resolution" 80x25.
1. On my windows 98 system, the dos box is 80*25 er, well squares. How do I make it larger?
2. How and what does PeekConsoleInput do? I have tried and it doesn't do squat for me.
Borland help files
The PeekConsoleInput function reads data from the specified console input buffer without removing it from the buffer.
HANDLE hConsoleInput, // handle of a console input buffer
PINPUT_RECORD pirBuffer, // address of the buffer for peek data
DWORD cInRecords, // number of records to read
LPDWORD lpcRead // address of number of records read
Identifies the input buffer. The handle must have GENERIC_READ access.
Points to an INPUT_RECORD buffer that receives the input buffer data.
Specifies the size, in records, of the buffer pointed to by the pirBuffer parameter.
Points to a 32-bit variable that receives the number of input records read.
If the function succeeds, the return value is TRUE.
If the function fails, the return value is FALSE. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
If the number of records requested exceeds the number of records available in the buffer, the number available is read. If no data is available, the function returns immediately.
INPUT_RECORD, ReadConsoleInput, WriteConsoleInput
3. If I put at the top of my main() function
ya know the thing that allows cnrl+C, if I try to enter a string via cin>> , the letters don't come up? What's up w/that?
Borland help files
ENABLE_PROCESSED_INPUT CTRL+C is processed by the system and is not placed in the input buffer. If the input buffer is being read by ReadFile or ReadConsole, other control keys are processed by the system and are not returned in the ReadFile or ReadConsole buffer. If the ENABLE_LINE_INPUT mode is also enabled, backspace, carriage return, and linefeed characters are handled by the system.
