NAME

clear_console - clear the console

SYNOPSIS

clear_console
 

DESCRIPTION

clear_console clears your console if this is possible. It looks in the environment for the terminal type and then in the terminfo database to figure out how to clear the screen. To clear the buffer, it then changes the foreground virtual terminal to another terminal and then back to the original terminal.
