Returning system commands

  Asked By: Ernesta    Date: Oct 04    Category: Java    Views: 704

I am using windows xp and I am trying to return system commands such
as clearing the console screen in java. I tried the following:

Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd /c cls");

but, it does not clear the console screen. Instead, it just wraps
around to the next line. Am I missing something?

I suspect this will open a new console  shell and tries the command there..
not in the context of opened one. using cls alone wont worksout..
