See
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dllproc/base/console_functions.asp
for the full documentation of Microsoft's console API.

It seems you can get the font and size with the GetCurrentConsoleFont and GetConsoleFontSize API calls, but I don't see
the equivalent functions for Set. My guess is you won't be able to set them in general, and since I don't see anything
related to fonts in the Win32::Console docs either, it's even more likely that it's not possible.

I suggest you dig around the api's on the msdn site, but I don't expect Win32::Console to be the place where you can
control font settings.

I've searched and still found nothing that seems to work so it appears Kandura is right...there just isn't a way to do it.
