NAME ^

clear - clear the screen

SYNOPSIS ^

clear

DESCRIPTION ^

Look in the termcap database, find the character to clear the screen, and emit it.

This is a direct lift from Section 15.7, Ringing the Terminal Bell, from Perl Cookbook, with cl substituted for vb.

TYPIST ^

Jeffrey S. Haemer

BUGS ^

clear should probably take an argument, like yes, that will let users send arbitrary termcap sequences, with cl as the default.

SEE ALSO ^

  Term::Cap(3)
