- If the system provides ioctl calls for this, these are used and tty_size/2
properly reflects the actual size after a user resize of the window. The ioctl
is issued on the file descriptor associated with the
user_inputstream. As a fallback, the system uses tty_get_capability/3 using
cocapabilities. In this case the reported size reflects the size at the first call and is not updated after a user-initiated resize of the terminal.
- Getting the size of the terminal is provided for swipl-win.exe.
The requested value reflects the current size. For the multithreaded
version the console that is associated with the
user_inputstream is used.
