    Question clearing an NT console

    I am writing for Win NT console, unfortunatly i am forced to use MS dev studio which doesnt support clrscr() and wont allow system calls, i have read msdn help in its entirety and am still unable to do it, i have been told that the NT console is different to a regular windows console, does anyone know how to clear it - im stuck, nobody i know can think of a way either

    Check MSDN. There's also a simplified version of this in the FAQ.
