    Clear Screen Again!!!

    I know this topic has already been touched on, but I am still curious.

    I am new to C and am writing a basic program for a school assignment. I would like to know if there is a function to clear the screen? I am using Windows 2000 and Visual C++ compiler.

    I basically want to clear the screen after accepting input from the keyboard. First off, I have a menu on the screen asking the user to choose either 1, 2, or 3.

    After the user provides input, I want to clear the screen and display some output.

    Is there a way to do that? I have tried everything and nothing seems to work.

    Please help.
    Regards,

    Yes it's been touched on -- in great detail. Search thru the posts, look at the FAQs. They will explain all!

    Thank you so much!!

    Thanks for your help!! Like I said, I'm new to this forum and C programming. I just registered to this forum half an hour ago, so I wasn't familiar to all of its features.

    I ended up searching through the posts and found an answer in the faqs.

    I used the last function on the very bottom, which worked!! All the top options didn't work at all, b/c the compiler I use didn't contain those particular libraries.

    I guess I kind of feel stupid to bring up the clear screen thing again. I'm sure you've heard it millions of times.

    Well, thanks again!!!

    Code:
    ++clear_screen_question;
    My best code is written with the delete key.
