NAME

       clear - clear the terminal screen


SYNOPSIS

       clear


DESCRIPTION

       clear  clears  your  screen if this is possible, including
       its scrollback buffer (if the extended "E3" capability  is
       defined).  clear looks in the environment for the terminal
       type and then in the terminfo database to determine how to
       clear the screen.

       clear  ignores  any  command-line  parameters  that may be
       present.
