Just a quick question:

How do you clear the screen in the shell? I've seen ways like:

import os os.system('cls')

This just opens the windows cmd, clears the screen and closes but I want the shell window to be cleared

(PS: I don't know this helps, but I'm using version 3.3.2 of Python)

Thank you :)

For clearing screen in the shell for OS X, you can use the subprocess module and call 'cls' from the shell:-

import subprocess as sp'cls',shell=True)

For the window you can use the following:-

tmp ='cls',shell=True)

For Linux, you must replace cls command with clear

tmp ='clear',shell=True)

To know more about this you can have a look at the following video tutorial:-
