    Unhappy clrscr() in microsoft visual c++

    how can I declare clrscr() in microsoft visual c++?
    in borland c++, clrscr() is declared in conio.h
    or doesn't microsoft visual c++ support clrscr()? or does microsoft visual c++ has another function instead of clrscr()?

    Hello,

    The function clrscr() is not within the C++ standard. It was included in a few compilers, such as Borland, in the header conio.h. So far there is neither a standard function for C or C++ that will clear the screen. The languages are designed to be platform independant.

    You can always learn more about clearing the screen in the FAQ area.

    Segmentation Fault: I am an error in which a running program attempts to access memory not allocated to it and core dumps with a segmentation violation error. This is often caused by improper usage of pointers, attempts to access a non-existent or read-only physical memory address, re-use of memory if freed within the same scope, de-referencing a null pointer, or (in C) inadvertently using a non-pointer variable as a pointer.

    system calls are not the best idea, read the same faq as Salem posted option 6
