    Was it a console app, Windows app, Linux, etc?
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    If it's DOS for 320x200x256:

    void CLS(unsigned char far *Surface,unsigned char color)
       asm {
         les   di,[Surface] 
         mov cx,32000d
         mov ah,color
         mov al,color
         rep stosw
    If it's DX in 32-bit color:

    Get a pointer to the surface by locking it:

    #define RGB32(r,g,b)  ((r<<24)+(g<<16)+(b<<8))

    This will fill the screen with one color - flash by clearing and filling every other frame.
