That depends heavily on what environment (operating system, etc)
you're running in. There is /no/ solution that works using only
Standard C. So your best bet is to ask somewhere environment-
specific, where you can not only expect an answer but to have
that answer supported (or not) by other local experts.

On a hunch that you're using some MS operating system, I believe
there's a comp.windows.programming you can ask in. Here there's
a strong bias for discussing the implementation-independant
aspects of C.

If your hunch is correct, then comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32 is
probably EreN's best bet.

I think windows doesn't let you "full screen" any more.
I am using windows server 2003, and there is no way to
put a console in full screen. Alt+Return doesn't work,
and the "window" parameter of the properties dialog
doesn't show any more the "full screen" option...

With modern screens like 1920x1280, that would look horrible anyway

If your hunch is correct, then comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32
is probably EreN's best bet.
Nobody has bothered to tell him that this group deals ONLY with the
standard portable C language, and that he should have lurked for a
while before posting to discover what is and is not topical here.
This advice applies to all newsgroups.

Although I didn't state it as strongly as CB did or give
the lurking advice, so I forgive him.

Mine does. The details are, of course, completely off-topic here, but
there are a plethora of Windows newsgroups where you can discuss this
as much as you like.

hi again to everyone #including <CBFalconer.h>

first of all, i want to thank you for your kind and helpful attitude
towards my question.
i said "Im new in this group so i dont know if that topic has been
opened
before" but of course ive searched it million times and i couldnt find
a proper answer.
you say that we are only discussing portable c. i ve posted it here
because i just wanted an solution in
the frames of portable c.

some of them have given me links opening to"How To Ask Questions The
Smart Way" etc.
i have searched links like "How To Be Human or Humanoid" but i couldnt
find it.
after that the Uncle Google remind me that it's something innate skill.
Thanx.

Standard C has no concept of screen, let alone full-screens. Generally,
changing to full-screen mode is highly system specific, hence posting
this question to comp.os.ms-windows.programmer etc. would elicit a much
better response.
