Clearing the Terminal Screen in Cygwin

It bugged me that Cygwin didn’t include the ‘clear’ command. This post explains that installing the ‘ncurses’ package will add clear; and also that C:l will clear the screen in bash. Thanks Hafiz!

  1. During installation of Cygwin, Expand Utils and get down to the “ncurses” files. There, you will click on the skip item, to the left of the ncurses utils. And than start installation along with other packages you want to install. After finishing installation use “clear” command,you will find, now its working.
