Clear is a custom font for EGA and VGA video adapters. It is an oversize,
specially shaped font designed to fit within the EGA and VGA's character cell.
To load Clear, just type "clear." The screen will come up in the new font.
Any program that resets the video mode will reset the card to its default
font. Programs that do this are mainly graphics and games. You may run
Clear as many times as necessary - it takes no memory, it just twiddles the
Clear wasn't designed to be beautiful, just legible. If you don't like the
font, just type MODE 80 and the default font will return. Only the alpha and
numeric characters are enlarged - the low and high ASCII characters remain
the same for compatibility.
Clear was written for use on low-grade monitors. It is also useful for
persons who are visually impaired or who have trouble with reading text on
their monitor due to bifocals or poor ambient lighting.
