Re: How do I clear screen in terminal
The Bash man page is excruciating. Does anyone actually understand it? Don't get me wrong... I very much appreciate all of the contributions that the FOSS community has made to the Linux-sphere, but that has to be the densest, most obscure and jargon-laden piece of arcanna I've ever tried to decipher. In my opinion, it stands as a shining example of how not to write a man page, which, after all, is at least partly meant to be a help document. What most distros need is a Bash cheater sheet for the rest of us. Perhaps just eight or ten screens deep and filled with stuff like <Ctrl>+<r> and <Ctrl>+<l> with one- or two-line summaries of use and function.
Ahh. Feel better now that I've got that off my chest.
Newb: How far must I jump to clear the ledge halfway down?
Guru: It's bad to jump off cliffs. Let's look at better options.
Newb: Stop harping about "best practices" and just let me jump.
