    Question clearscreen

    I am a total newbie in C++ but learning, I have been reading a few tutorials and was just wondering if there is a clearscreen command.

    Also if I am interested in learning this langauge would you suggest I buy a book and learn it or is there sufficient tutorials online that are helpful, easy to understand and accurate?

    Thanks, I have read over them carefully. I am surprised that MSVC++ doesn't have the clrscr(); function.

    Hehe it probably does I am just doing it wrong :O

    Why is that? Clearing the screen is a nonstandard function, a compiler vendor doesn't have to support it.

    >I am just doing it wrong
    Yes, Visual Studio doesn't define clrscr, use another option from the FAQ (I would recommend the Windows Console Option).
    My best code is written with the delete key.
