shutil.get_terminal_size() is available on all platforms.


On windows, it works with Command Prompt and PowerShell but fails in IDLE, as it must. In the absence of knowledge, it guesses the default of 80 x 24 (as documented). AFAIK, there is no way whether an answer of 80 x 24 is correct or arbitrary nonsense. Returning 0 x 0 instead would be more informative.
