Lots of old school folks use VSQL for administrative tasks. As you enter commands, eventually the command prompt will end up at the bottom left of the screen making it a little difficult to read any additional output from your commands.

You can clear the screen and move the prompt back up to the top left using the Linux clear command!

Example:
dbadmin=>  \! clear
