clearing screen by tput
Authored by: europacode on Feb 04, '02 11:59:28PM

you can also clear the screen by using a command called tput and the option clear. ex: tput clear.

there are other options for tput too for controlling the terminal display. see the man page for more info, you can also do alot of other things with tput too. i dont think this one has been mentioned yet.

i usually make an alias called 'cls' to make it easier....
alias cls='tput clear'
