CLEAR(1)                   Linux Programmer's Manual                  CLEAR(1)



NAME
       clear(1,3x,3x clrtobot) - clear(1,3x,3x clrtobot) terminal screen

SYNOPSIS
       clear(1,3x,3x clrtobot)

DESCRIPTION
       clear(1,3x,3x clrtobot)  calls  tput(1)  with  the  clear(1,3x,3x clrtobot)  argument.  This causes tput to
       attempt to clear(1,3x,3x clrtobot) the screen checking the data in(1,8) /etc/termcap (for  the
       GNU or BSD tput) or in(1,8) the terminfo database (for the ncurses tput) and
       sending the appropriate sequence to the terminal.  This command can  be
       redirected to clear(1,3x,3x clrtobot) the screen of some other terminal.
