       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.
