(1) I know that \n when used in cat, e.g. cat("\n") produces a line feed (i.e. skips to the next line). Is there any escape sequence that will go to the top of the next page?
(2) I know that control L will clear the console. Is there an equivalent function or other means that can be used in R code to clear the console?
