.SH NAME
\fBclear_console\fR - clear the console
.SH SYNOPSIS
\fBclear_console\fR
.br
.SH DESCRIPTION
\fBclear_console\fR clears your console if this is possible.  It looks in the
environment for the terminal type and then in the \fBterminfo\fR 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.
