My question is: how do I make the equivalent java system call to clear screen as done in C++ using " system("cls"); "? Thankyou.

public class ClearScreen{

public static void main(String args[]){

for( int i = 0; i < 1000; i++ ){//1000? just my idea...you could use say, 50

Runtime r = Runtime.getRuntime ();

Process p = r.exec ("cmd /c cls");


catch(IOException e){
