I have always wished that my computer would be as easy to use as my telephone. My wish has come true. I no longer know how to use my telephone.
I am doing a startup!
Cross-browser testing from your browser!
I have written my fourth book!
Be faster than Larry Wall at command line!

"The same can be achieved by tput command,
$ tput clear"
Or you can just use the "clear" command
It's also worth mentioning that this doesn't really clear the screen on terminal windows, just scrolls the window by enough lines to make it look cleared. If you scroll back up, you'll still see the old content.
It actually depends on your terminal. clear, which internally does the same as tput clear, outputs the CSI 2 J escape sequence that instructs the terminal to erase the data on the screen. There may or may not be line scrolling depending on terminal capabilities.

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
