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.
