Classical question: How do I clear the screen from my TCL script?

I am a Unix/Linux user. To clear the screen I usually use the "clear" command in the prompt. Now I want to do it inside a tcl script, but have no lucks. Any helps will be appreciated.

The results of my google search have suggested the following TCL commands

puts [exec clear]
puts [exec /usr/bin/clear]
puts \x1B\[2J
puts \x1b\[H\x1b\[2J

None of them is working for me, in other words the above commands have no effect to clear the screen as expected.

But give it a try
