how to increase the size of texts in (l)xterm through the command

how to increase the size of texts in (l)xterm through the command x-terminal-emulator?

does a simple option in the commando line or link (  x-command-emulator is only a link! ) exist?

Re: how to increase the size of texts in (l)xterm through the command

Use ~/.Xresources to set the text size in xterm.

Here's my font configuration:

*vt100.faceName: mono:size=11

See the RESOURCES section of man xterm for a full list of options.

Or use this:

xterm -fa mono:size=11

It would not be appropriate to apply this option to x-terminal-emulator because it would break if that alternative was changed to point to a different emulator.
