There is no correct way. Every console is different so you have 
to adapt.
That having been said Fred Lundh has written a console module 
that tries to hide the diffeent trminal types in a common set 
of commands - you can download it from his site.

The other ways are:



DOS/Windows console:



print '\n' * 100 # a 100 line screen...

Or you could find the control codes for your screen
and print them as octal character codes...
