    The FAQ has a wealth of information for a novice such as yourself. I would recommend reading it or printing it out.

    If you are running a DOS program you can clear the screen by using the system() command. To clear the screen you would just put in:
    system("cls");
    and that should clear the screen.
    I think you have to include stdlib.h to use the system function though.
