Import this file (from clear import clear)
or paste the above lines of code into
your shell or in your script.
 
Then, use "-clear" to clear the screen, i.e:
 
>>> -clear
 
Or call it as a function:
 
>>> clear()
 
Or if you're on a shell, you can also type:
 
>>> clear
 
This file can be called as a regular program, also.
