Often I get frustrated with the inability to set my
icon tool types or helpers to open just the right sized
console window. 

CONSize to the rescue! Position your window how you want
and run CONSize. The output string will be a fully 
fledged CON: handler string that has the exact same offset
and size as the window you're running the utility from.

If you prefer NEWCON or VNC or KCON instead, simply pass
that value as the first parameter and it will generate a
string with that as the handler. 

If you prefer to customize the Title of the generated string,
no problem! Pass a second parameter with the value of the 
title or other values you might want. For example, if you
are using ViNCEd you may want something like


Which will generate the string, if you're full screen on a
NTSC Hi Res screen, like the following:


Long titles or values with spaces are supported if you wrap
the second parameter in double quotes.

Source is include, and compiled with SAS/C 6.58. It is compatible
with OS 1.3 and above. License is...none! Do whatever you
want with it.
