NAME
       clear - clear the terminal screen

SYNOPSIS
       clear [term]

DESCRIPTION
       The  clear  utility  clears the terminal screen if this is possible. It
       looks in the environment for the terminal type, if this is not  already
       specified  by the term operand, and then looks up the terminfo database
       to figure out how to clear the screen.

OPERANDS
       term     Indicates the type of  terminal.  Normally,  this  operand  is
                unnecessary  because the default is taken from the environment
                variable TERM.
