Clear screen in C

I am new to programming, and so I do encounter basic issues. In the program I am building, I need to clear the screen at a certain point, but it does not accept clrscr(); or system("cls"); what are other options available?? I have included stdio.h & conio.h. If it helps, the compiler I am using is Visual studio 2010.


Visual Studio removed "common" conio.h functions, like clear screen, a long time ago.

system() is in stdlib.h if you want to use it.

However, if you want to do serious terminal output on Windows, check out something like this:

You, should use stdlib.h library file to get the clear screen command. And also the command for clearing the screen in c/c++ in visual studio is

#include <stdlib.h>

system ("cls");
