Thus should be a FAQ somewhere...
Clearing the screen is terminal specific so Python doesn't have a single
to do it.
Since you mention Windows I'll assume thats what you are using and
simply use the CLS command via an os.system() call:
If you have Linux substitute 'clear' for CLS
Or as a last resort write your own:
for row in rows: print
If you use curses it has a couple of functions for clearing a window.
