Irb > HowTo / Can I > ClearScreen?

Hi. When in terminal/cmd in case I need to clear screen I can type ‘cls’
(windows) … the question I have is, once in IRB, is there a similar
command?

I use Ctrl-L, but technically that’s cheating; I think it’s part of
Unix rather than part of IRB. So it may not work on Windows.

You can use system(‘cls’), cls seems like got problem on windows.

Ok … system(‘cls’) works fine on Windows, but unfortunately Ctrl-L
doesn’t.

Thanx all for the tips :slight_smile:
