Default Font Pixelsize - Without counting?

Hey guys!

I'm currently working on a game, that involves ASCII Art. In the background I want to have my engine that does the math stuff: collisions, position changes etc.

Of course, the images (texts) differ in size (not in font size: number of chars), but use the same font.

Now I need to know how large a character is in pixels at a certain font size, so that I can define one constant to calculate with. I want to achieve that without counting the pixels manually on screen. Is there a formula or maybe information stored somewhere at the font data? Its Fixedsys.

I haven't found anything on the net so far.

Thanks in advance!
