    Please consult the FAQ.

    The link is just below. Try to read and understand it.
    hth
    -nv

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Code:
    void clear()
    {
    
      int i,j,k;
    
      i = 80;
    
      j = 26
    
      k = i * j;
    
      while (j >= 0)
      {  
         cout << ' ';
         --j;
      }
    
      cout.flush();
    }
    
    or
    
    void clear()
    {
    
      int i=30;
    
      while (i >=0)
      {   
         cout << '\n';
         --i;
      }
    
      cout.flush()
    
    }
