I have a class that extends Canvas. I want to clear the screen after I have drawn on it. I noticed there is no Graphics.clear(). How should I clear the screen?

Set the background color and fill the screen, as in:
protected void paint( Graphics g )
g.setColor( 255, 255, 255 );
g.fillRect( 0, 0, getWidth(), getHeight() );
