Hello
I have written an .sh script in bash. This script checks the time every minute and echoe's it as words, e.g. like "its ten past five". Now the size of the terminal output is very small - I would like to have a bigger output, I mean bigger words. How can I do it?
Mayebe you can reccomend me another method to realize my program. My aim would be to start the computer and run the script, so that the script will fill all the screen and the size of the letters would be big, so that the screen is filled.

Thank you very much!

Sounds a bit like a screensaver, might be worth checking out.
I've not done it myself but google should be able to help.
