    Default clear screen.

    i want to ask.. what method does java has like
    the method that we used to declare in C that clears a screen conolse... (clrscr())


    coz im writing a program right now.. and i wrote a temporary block of code.. that show the value
    of my objects.. (just for checking)

    its just that i want to write a command that can clear a the screen while the program is running..
    instead of re-executing the program again and again

    Unfortunately, Java doesn't have a clear screen equivalent command. The only choices are JNI, or simply outputting a lot of new-lines to have a pseudo-cleared screen.

    clrscr() is not standard C! Do not use it! If you want a solution, then here is a Windows only Solution, this is why you just don't do it!

    Stick the dll and the class files in the same folder as your class then just call Console.clr();
