The "reset" command does not work for me if my TTY gets hosed. Nor does "stty sane".

But this always works:
printf "\033c"

In addtion to the manpage, my UNIX also comes with a copy of the ascii table in /usr/share/misc. Not sure if Linux has this.

@vasudev- It may be piped from troff/nroff to less. col is extremely useful.
