    do i need a lib for clrscr()?

    Im using Dev C++ 4.9.2 as my compiler and it wont let me use clrscr(). It always says, clrscr() undefined please define this function.

    I know a few friends who use other compilers and it works fine in theirs. I dont know if my program will work in another compiler yet, so I was just gonna add a lib or a header or something that would make clrscr() work. If there is such a thing. Is there?
    Code:
    /* ------------------------------------------------------------------*/
                               // INSERT CODE HERE
    /* ------------------------------------------------------------------*/

    Gotta love the "please fix this for me, but I'm not going to tell you which functions we're allowed to use" posts.

    Its always good to know what's standard portable C++, and what's not. Here a couple of links to C++ Standard Library references. If you don't find the function here it's non-standard.
