3.3 clear

The clear command erases the current screen or output device as specified by output. This usually generates a formfeed on hardcopy devices. Use terminal to set the device type.

For some terminals clear erases only the portion of the plotting surface defined by size, so for these it can be used in conjunction with multiplot to create an inset.

Example:

      set multiplot
      plot sin(x)
      set origin 0.5,0.5
      set size 0.4,0.4
      clear
      plot cos(x)
      unset multiplot

Please see multiplot, size, and origin for details of these commands.
