Ret one of these:

1) alias cls='echo -n ^[[2J'            # the ^[ is an esc (in vi I use ^V followed by
                                        # ^[ where ^ is holding down the cntrl key)

2) compile this into clear.exe or cls.exe:

        #include <stdio.h>
        int
        main () {
        printf ("\033[2J");
        }

3) alias cls='cat ~/.cls'
        where .cls contains just these 4 chars with no \n (ESC [ 2 J)
