Ever mess up your terminal, by viewing a binary file, so that all the
letters you type look weird ? All you need to do is type:
What this is doing is outputting an escape-c character to the terminal -
the code for a full terminal reset. When you use the cat command, with no

key, and the letter c.
OK, so most distros have a "reset" command, but this will work on any unix
OS - even windows telnet.
