Linux: shared memory odd problem

Hello
I hate ask long and odd questions but this problem make me really insane!!!!!!! please help me. I apologize you.

I coded a game in Linux and it works. (fireballs.cpp)
I decided to code it using shared memory and fork. (fork.cpp)
it works but Player class's Move function that should move player's shield, doesn't clear previously printed characters.

I hope help me

want to mention compilation command:
g++ fork.cpp -o fork.o -lpthread -lncurses -O2 (also for fireballs.cpp)

I apologize you again for my long and odd question. please help me

Run your program under a debugger (gdb, for example) and step through the code which you expect to clear the characters.

It's a bit tricky to debug a program which forks, because the debugger will only follow the parent, not the child process.  One way around this is to print the PID for the child and have it sleep for a while, which will allow you enough time to attach to the child process.

Maybe you should simply clear the screen before drawing in the main loop ?

my friend
my problem was so odd and hard to tell it to someone else, unfortunately!
so, now I don't want to fix the problem because I don't need the code anymore!
so, I apologize you anymore
regards
