           Summary: 'Clear' escape sequence
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: SVN
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: BOOK
        AssignedTo: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: randy at linuxfromscratch.org

This is a very minor issue, please disregard and close the bug if it
1) doesn't make sense, or
2) is completely wrong

In the "Customizing your Logon with /etc/issue" section of Chapter 3,
there is a reference to the escape sequence used to clear the screen
The book says "^[c" however, this could be confusing to folks as this
sequence is not what is shown in a file I create and then edit using
standard vim.

I get "^[[H^[[2J" on an xterm and "^[[H^[[J" on a Linux console. I'm 
only mentioning this as some users may be looking for what is shown
in the book and may not understand what is at the top of the file
they created.
