system("cls") replacement?

I want to know what is the replacement for system("cls"), something that can be more portable and OS undependable. I'm programming in C++ with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. Thanks..

What does cls do? You probably won't get very many answers without going into detail about the program since it isn't a *nix program.

You may want to look into the Mono project.
