Hi there,

I want to enter "control key and L" from a script.  How can I do it?  Or have an alias for pressing "control + L".
CTRL+ L is clear screen in QNX.

Don't you have "tput"?

Try

tput clear

Most Unixes have the "clear" command too. Simply:

clear

If you must use Ctrl-L  then you can do in vi:

Ctrl-V CTRL-L

Thanks,
This is a strip down version of QNX and does not have many commands.

I want to do something like
alias clear = ????

Maybe this:

alias clear=`echo "\014"`

Please note the  backticks  `  `  !

Is there really no "tput"?
