Thank you for the F11 suggestion.. F11 does make the IDE window full screen,
Thanks!! That's very helpful.  My program however does not respond to F11.
There is no way to resize the window, make it larger or smaller or full
screen, it's just a fixed size window.. this is the version using ptcgraph

Is there a way to get the linux text mode IDE to colorize things like the
windows text mode IDE?  Linux is just all yellow on light blue. The windows
one for example will show comments in grey  reserved words in white.. ect..
it makes it a lot easier to follow

Press F11. That is a almost universal shortcut for any X11 desktop
environment and Window Manager to switch the active program to full screen.

If you are running the program in a Console login (ie: no X11 running), then
in should be fullscreen as standard.
