clear max window from patch?

    i saw a post last month about this, but it quickly digressed.
    is there a way? i mean, i can end an email, or even delete my entire home folder using a command line interpreter, so surely there must be something to clear the max window??

      i'm pretty sure you can't. i've seen an external that clean the max window by posting a lot of blank lines. but i think it's not really what you want...

      it could be done using osculator... but i think it's easier to click...
      send osc messages from max to osculator that triggers the keyboard shortcut chain (+M, +A, +X) in max/msp.
      but it's like killing a fly with a dozer.

      It can be done without OSCulator using a series of keystrokes:
      +M, +A, +X, +`
      And focus should return to the patcher you started with. And it spells out MAX, so that's kind of a bonus.
      If you want to preserve clipboard contents:
      +M, +A, [delete], +`
