How can I delete everything in the work space?

How can I delete everything in the work space? Kenneth mentions "clear" after using exit() but I didn't understand exactly what he did.

I simply made a variable:

cleanup = " " * 500

then I just did: print(cleanup)

Printing a whitespace 500 times. But good to know there's an actual command for it xD

type exit() to exit python shell then type clear and press enter. re enter shell by typing python again

If you want to clear screen without exiting the python shell then just use ctrl + l it will clear screen.
