I am using res.cls by Michael DeCorte to create my CV. I wanted to increase the font size.

\documentclass[resmargin]{res}

Any help would be appreciated.

    FYI: The class mentioned is quite old, there are much more modern classes and packages for CVs.

  • res.cls load articls.cls so nothing special for font size

    By 'nothing special' touhami may mean adding 11pt or 12pt to the class options, e.g. \documentclass[resmargin,12pt]{res}. Commented Mar 13, 2015 at 22:47

As touhami says, res.cls loads article, and it doesn't change the default size of 10pt. Hence, you can add either 11pt or 12pt to the class options to get a larger font, e.g.

\documentclass[12pt]{res} 

This is also mentioned in the comments at the start of res.cls, where you'll find

% You can have multiple style options the legal options ones are:
%
%  [some other options]
%       
%   11pt    use 11 point fonts instead of 10 point fonts
%
%   12pt    use 12 point fonts instead of 10 point fonts
