hi!

check this out: https://www.quora.com/How-do-I-clear-console-screen-CMD-screen-in-Java-Is-there-any-function-in-Java-like-clrscr-and-system-cls-in-C

bascially you can use this:

public static void clearScreen() { System.out.print("\033[H\033[2J"); System.out.flush(); }

or:

System.out.print("\033[H\033[2J");

or

System.out.flush();

or

Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cls");

but i think the 1st one is the best ;)

Happy coding and hope this helps! =)
