       clear - clear the terminal screen


       clear  clears your screen if this is possible.  It looks in the environment for the termi-
       nal type and then in the terminfo database to figure out how to clear  the  screen.   Some
       terminals  can  clear also their scrollback buffer to prevent access to potentially sensi-
       tive data.  If the terminfo entry for the terminal type contains extended  capability  E3,
       clear will use it to clear the scrollback buffer.

       clear ignores any command-line parameters that may be present.
