We have an i-series here where I work and I was wanting to use some older

on the desktop, but I can't seem to get it to scale the way the IBM Windows
clients will. If I expand the window, the text remains at the same size it
was when the terminal was launched.

How do I get the text to scale up with the size of the terminal window???

If you are doing this on Windows then Scott will have to answer whether or not the windows version supports scaling text. As for xt5250/tn5250/x5250 on linux/BSD/whatever it does not support scaling the text to match an arbitrary window size. I'm working on this for x5250, albeit very slowly.

What you can do is specify font sizes instead of window sizes. A larger font will give a larger window. This works in xt5250 and x5250.

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
