Detailed Description

Manipulator that clears a terminal screen the c++ (hard) way.

Function object manipulator that clears an output terminal screen the hard (c++) way by sending 80 new lines to it.

The library instantiates a variable of this class under the name 'clrscr', so you need only refer to ecl::streams::clrscr to directly use it with your streams.

◆ action()

template<typename ODevice >
void ecl::ClearScreen::action ( interfaces::OutputTextStream< ODevice, true > &  ostream)

Clears a terminal screen the c++ (hard) way.

Not very fast on most systems - hammers the terminal with alot of newlines. In windows this causes a problem since terminal screens are so slow and on screens with large resolutions, the 80 lines is not enough. Might actually implement system specific code for this at some time in the future.

Template Parameters
OutputStream: the output stream type.
ostream: the stream to use for manipulation.
