If it runs in text-only mode, how can I determine its current
screen size (i.e. how many lines and characters per line)?

bash has env vars, $LINES and $COLUMNS, that will give screen size.

The variables are there, but they are not exported:

$ echo $LINES,$COLUMNS; env | grep LINES; env | grep COLUMNS
