Problem with system ("cls")

Answered

Hi, I have problem with syste("cls") in cLion in C++. I included <cstdlib>, but it doesn't work usually. It sometimes works as it wants, e.g. clear a few lines.

How can I fix it? Do I need other compiler or debbugger? Maybe I should change something in Settings?

Hello!

It's not implemented yet. Here is the feature request about the system("clear"): https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/CPP-822. Feel free to comment or upvote.

It doesn.t work either. I work on Windows, the compiler can't recognized "clear".

Yes, it doesn't work because it's not supported in CLion yet. That's why I suggest you to comment or upvote the related feature request.

Still system.("cls"); is not implemented yet.

MANIKANDAN R if you're on Windows, feel free to install CLion 2021.2 EAP (https://www.jetbrains.com/clion/nextversion/) and try using the new "Run in external console" option in a run/debug configuration (https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/CPP-14077).

Dannmmaster not yet. CPP-822 is not fixed yet, and the "Run in external console" option is available only on Windows for now - CPP-1576.
