clrscr in c

clrscr function clears the screen amd move the cursor to upper left hand corner of screen.

C programming code for clrscr

#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
 
main()
{
   printf("Press any key to clear the screen.\n");
 
   getch();
 
   clrscr();
 
   printf("This appears after clearing the screen.\n");
   printf("Press any key to exit...\n");
 
   getch();
   return 0;
}

In the above program first we display the message "Press any key to clear the screen." using printf and then ask the user to press a key. When user will press a key screen will be cleared and another message will be printed. clrscr function does not work in Dev C++ compiler. Also do not use clrscr in graphics mode instead use cleardevice.
