I would like to reset completely terminal window. Not 'clear' - old outputs are still there, when u scroll up. It is especially useful during reading some debugger output, to have one attempt in termial (it takes hundreds of lines).

Command-K should do the trick. (or View > Clear Scrollback)

Yep, try "View" > "Clear Scrollback ⌘K"

Use the shortcut: Cmd + K or View -> Clear Scrollback.

However, if you messed up the encoding of the Terminal by piping output incorrectly, you should first call the reset command to re-initialize the it.
