Sorry. I don't know of anyway to mix terminal fonts. You can easily change your terminal font by calling the user-space tool "setfont", but that will change the entire terminal. It's not pretty, but you many need to write your own line-art font rendering routines. Take a look at "myman" http://www.geocities.com/bsittler/#myman and see how the author does that in the "big" version of the game.

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 <mailto: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
