Re: Change terminal attributes

Dear Bryan,
I would like to write some characters with different size(ex. Big) on application n-curses/CDK window.
Do you have any suggestion?

2007/5/11, Bryan Christ <address@hidden>:
I'm not sure I understand your question--it sounds like you want to
handle resizing the terminal.

When the terminal is resized the signal SIGWINCH is delivered to your
program.  If you are using ncurses, this signal is caught by a default
handler and you will get a value of KEY_RESIZE when you make the next
call to getch().

If you are running other process or writing your own terminal emulator,
it is likely you will then want to deliver SIGWINCH to the foreground
job and (possibly) issue the TIOCSWINSZ ioctl to the pty.

For more information, take a look at the man pages for resizeterm() and
