Bash: Reset and Clear Commands

I know about Linux command clear, but it just moves previous output from visible part of terminal window (KDE Konsole). I can still scroll up and see all previous text. Is there similar command that can erase entire content of a terminal window? Something like clc in matlab.

Maybe you mean Konsole then, instead of console. The history is a setting inside each terminal application, normally called scrollback. And I think under Edit, is Clear History –  Ryan Gibbons Aug 9 '11 at 4:14

clear should clear the entire terminal, as far as I know. reset might be what you're looking for.

Also, this should be in the super user stack overflow.
