In short, no. You really ought to be able to command WINDOW ,0,0,80,25
to resize the current window, but you can't. This is easy enough to
work around with XPL, though. Here's frame WINDOW (DEC
decodes; same is also attached):

XPLeNCODE v2.0 (ENCODE.EXE)
b-gin [UNTITLED]
{123}{123}5window{125}{125} Resize the current window {091}CLD
{093}[cr|lf]{002}{<}IF{<}VA|50{>}>0{>}{<}SX51,{<}VA$WN{>}{>}[BX_]
window {<}PV51{>},{<}PV50{>}[Q2_]{<}EX{>}{<}EI{>}{<}PRWINDOW l
eft,top,width,length{>}{002}[cr|lf][cr|lf]
-nd
XPLeNCODE


PS to the list: If I'm scarce around here over the weekend it's because
I'm away -- so don't picture me swinging from a noose or anything
(though I confess I've entertained the image several times in the last
few days).
