"clear" and "reset" bash commands broken


I recently noticed upon exiting from root in a bash shell (i.e., "exit" after "su -") that I got an error "-bash: clear: command not found"

I couldn't figure out why this was happening, so I tried entering "clear" in a command prompt window, both as a user and as root. In both cases, I noticed that neither "clear" nor "reset" works in bash, and neither binary can be found on my filesystem. How did this happen? How do I fix it?

I'm using FC4, kernel 2.6.16-1.2111_FC4.

Thanks.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
