how do i clear the screen in DB2.
I am using DB2 CLP 7.2.5 in an AIX 4.3 environment.
Like in oracle if my screen becomes too messy, i can use the "cls scr" command to clear the whole screen. how do i do that in Db2.

thanks in advance for your help.

!clear;

the semi-colon is required to terminate the db2 command if you started with db2 -t
