AmigaOS 4.0 - About OS4 - Commands
||Changes the font of the current Shell.
SETFONT lets you change the font used in a particular Shell window, overriding the System Default Text setting
specified in the Font editor. SETFONT is only effective in the window in which it is invoked.
You must specify both a font name and a size when using the SETFONT command. The other options are:
||Enables bitmap font scaling.
||Allows proportional fonts.
||The font is italic.
||The font is boldface.
||The font is underlined.
||The font uses the character set specified, which must match one defined in LOCALE:CharSets.
Invoking SETFONT clears the Shell window of its current contents and displays a new prompt, in the new font, at the
top of the window. Using proportional fonts in a Shell window is not recommended because the variable character spacing
prevents columns of information from lining up and makes editing the command line difficult.
3.OS4:> SETFONT topaz 11 BOLD UNDERLINE
the Shell window clears and the new prompt is in 11 point Topaz, underlined and boldface.
