Sets the number of columns that the device-resident font uses.
Used by: GDEVICE Chartype window, GDEVICE procedure, CHARREC= option
Default: 0


For information about the syntax, see CHARREC.
If you are using a device driver from SASHELP.DEVICES, this parameter is already set for device-resident fonts that have been defined for your installation. If you are adding to or modifying the device-resident fonts available for a particular device driver, specify a positive value for the COLS device parameter. If COLS is greater than 0, it overrides the values of the LCOLS and PCOLS device parameters. For scalable fonts, you can specify 1 for COLS, and the actual number of columns will be computed based on the current text width.
