Maximize DOS shell window in Windows 3.1

If a DOS program is run inside Windows in a DOS window (not full screen) in
enhanced mode, can the window be made to maximize or enlarge by the program?
Can it be done?

If the window is not maximized or enlarged, not all the screen data is visible
(the program runs in 50-line text mode and is written in Turbo Pascal).

Obviously users can resize the window themselves, but I thought it might
be a "nice" feature to do this automatically!

In full screen, all 50 lines are displayed fine.

In another time and place this could be funny.
