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.

SEE ALSO
       tput(1), terminfo(5)

       This describes ncurses version 5.9 (patch 20140118).
