Depends on the terminal. Is it a vt100, a Wyse50, an Altos II a vt52,
an adm3a, etc. etc.?
One way of finding out the sequences for different kinds of terminal is to
consult the terminfo(5) or termcap(5) databases. If you want to do things like
clear the screen or address the cursor in a script, use tput(1), which uses
terminfo(5) capability nomenclature. For C programs use curses(3).
