How to clear C++ console?

How do I clear the C++ console? I’m using Replit IDE.

system(“cls”) for windows
system(“clear”); For Linux (this replit)

But using system is a security risk if you use it for other things on console.

hmm @whileTRUEpass’s answer is great but a faster way is:

#include <iostream>

int main() {
    std::cout << "Hello!\033c";

there will be no output \033c clears console


Might be faster indeed. Console and c++ is something I do rarely these days so could be indeed.

yeah I tested it, it’s about 10x faster than system, I understand if you don’t do very much of it these days :frowning:

I use console for debugging and mostly files for logging, feels like a waste to use Cpp for programs using lot of console.

Don’t you have to add these headers for this to work:

#ifdef _WIN32
#include <Windows.h>
#include <unistd.h>
