how to change the font size of shell in $ prompt

Can any help me to change the default font type and its size..

To clear more about my question..
Once i login to my unix domain... the font it displaying is of small size...
all my shell commands i am executing in $ prompt also carries the same style(ls, date and echo...)

i searched whole forum and googled it for long time and didnt found out the answers...

im in ksh and im using Secure CRT to connect to my server...
tried many things.. one among that is

vi .kshrc

First you have to find out what type your terminal is. Issue "echo $TERM" and if it is

vt100, vt200, ansi or the like

you have to change the font in the terminal emulation software you use (putty, hyperterm, whatever).


xterm or aixterm

right-click into the window while you hold down the ALT-key (or the CTRL-key? not sure, just try) and select a different size from the upcoming menu. To change the fonts selected by the menu entries (if you do not like them altogether) enter the appropriate X-resource string into your "$HOME/.Xdefaults" file.

Here is an example, which will add a font with german diacriticals ("Umlauts") to the XTerm font menu and label it "ISO8859-Charset":


Code:
XTerm*VT100*font1: -ibm--medium-r-medium--20-14-100-100-c-90-iso8859-1
XTerm*fontMenu*font1*Label:   ISO8859-Charset


dtterm

simply select "Options" from the menu. To make the change lasting change the preferences of CDE.

I hope this helps.
