    So you are probably using the windows console. The dos-like
    black window in Windows. Clearing the screen can be easy
    but it can also be quite difficult. That depends on what compiler
    you use. If you don't want to wait for me to answer when you
    posted the info, go and look into this site's FAQ.
    Clearing the screen is a major point in there.

    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.
