bash clear command not found - clear not working on cygwin

Ok so you installed Cygwin and try out your first commands.... u cluttered ur screen and its time for doing a "clear".

Ooops... its giving you a "bash: clear: command not found". You just can't clear the dumb screen. I know thats frustrating....

So which dumb package did you miss when installing cygwin --- its the ncurses package. Open cygwin setup again and choose ncurses library from the "Lib" package. Once you've installed that, clear will start working.

If you are lazy enough and don't want to download stuff, just use "Ctrl+L" to clear your screen.


Keep clearing...
