Tried to use os.system('clear') but had a problem.

Hi all,

This is my script:

from os import system

system('clear')

print('\nI am here!')

This is what displayed:

ESC[HESC[2J

I am here!

I am using MacOS Big Sur, Wing Pro 7.2.8.0 (rev 87ca750566c6) with python 3.9

Thank you in advance.

This is due to Wing's Debug I/O tool not being a terminal emulator. It should work in an external console that can be enabled by using Configure External Console on the Options menu of the Debug I/O tool.

Hi, I followed your instruction and it worked fine. It seems that PyCharm is a bit easier for me to deal with than Wing. Just have to keep learning, I guess!

Thank you very much.
