NAME
       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.
