Is it possible to clear the screen in repl.it. I want to be able to clear the screen after the player has entered some input.
Yes, it is possible. Simply do
std::cout << "\e[2J\e[H" to clear the screen.
Printing that string will also work in almost every language on Repl.it too.
It uses ANSI escape codes, which are special codes that you can print to the terminal to do certain things. For example, here we're printing \e[2J and \e[H.
\e means an escape character in c++, which is what all ansi escape codes start with. Then, the
[ character signifies that it is a CSI (Control Sequence Introducer) code. The characters proceeding it are the code for the sequence. The
2J means to clear the entire screen, but not move the cursor. Then, the
H moves the cursor to the start of the terminal.
