extension to idle to clear screen - but how to write to screen?

owl
and here I thought I was going to finally be able to change the world
AND contribute back to python with my amazing clear screen extension -
but I can't get it to work. ;(

Copying from ZoomHeight.py and someone else's clever print suggestion:
-------------------------------------------------
# My Clear extension: clear a window

class Clear:

menudefs = [
('windows', [
('_Clear', '<<clear>>'),
])
]

def __init__(self, editwin):
self.editwin = editwin

def clear_event(self, event):
for i in range(60):
print
--------------------------------------------------

It shows up as a menu item, but does not do anything. No output,
nuffin.
I did get some sort of 'no connection msg' playing around which leads
me to believe that I can't really write to the window (at least not
this simplistically)...

Pointers?

Try this:
self.editiwin.write('\n'*60)
- Tal Einat
reduce(lambda m,x:[m[i]+s[-1] for i,s in enumerate(sorted(m))],
[[chr(154-ord(c)) for c in '.&-&,l.Z95193+179-']]*18)[3]
