Alright well I was wondering how one might clear the console screen in a program without using system("CLS") because I hear it is bad to use for alot of reason, not I have used the curuse and I wont work with my program for some reasons keeps coming back as not being found and the clrscr(); but it also dosn't work now is their a way to use the system("pause") and make it safe for a final project or am i just stuck
If your teacher (you said final project so I'm assuming this is for school) didn't show you any other way, I'd say do whatever you were shown. But in the long run, you're better off using a library/framework that does all that stuff for you. Or better yet, don't clear the screen. If you're making a menu driven interface, the first thing to realize is the console is different from point-and-click interfaces. It's meant to be run quickly. Usually console programs take arguments up front instead of walking the user through a list of choices.
IMO, just do whatever you've done before if this is short notice. Then learn the correct way to improve your skills
Well no its not for school i just say project because that what I call a program but I am atucally working on a game so, I didnt want to have the screen clustered with txt . which is why I wanted to clear the screen '
Being a console game, it makes sense to clear the screen. I thought you were talking about a utility or something.
Yeah. If you haven't looked at libraries yet, I'd look at different libraries/frameworks. You'll find that a good toolkit you get comfortable with can really help you do things (like clearing the screen) in one line of code, and they can be cross-platform.
