Hello,
this is a trivial question but i have no choice but to ask.
What is the cls (DOS command for clearing screen) equivalent command in mysql to clear the screen not the buffer?
thanks.

Brian,

Are you sure there *is* one? I just did some looking in the manual, and all that I can find is "clear", but I'm unsure what that does. It doesn't clear the screen, nor does it clear the command buffer. One thing you can do is just hit return a bunch of times and push whatever is on the screen off.

If you find it, please post it.

Peace,
Phillip
