how to initialize size of DOS Window?

    Running Active Perl on Windows XP: - when I execute a PERL script,
    a DOS-style command window is created - but it's always a mere 25 lines
    big.... how can I set it to other (larger) sizes.

    I set up a simple shortcut to the DOS window and it (the shortcut) has
    properties
    that let you adjust the window (font, color, size) ... but the executable
    itself
    (windows/system32/cmd.exe) does not.

    Thanks for any tips.

    This worked in a Win98 console (at the > prompt).
    c:\windows>mode con lines=50
