You don't say what operating system you're using .....

Anyhow, as far as I know there is no built-in to clear the screen. But one is easy to build. On a Unix system you could do

        cl <- function(){system("clear")}

then executing cl() will clear the screen for you.

On a Windoze system I think replacing ``clear'' by ``cls'' in the definition of cl() should work.
