I use bash on Xterm.
While working you press Ctrl-L, so that the screen gets cleared and
you see the currently line only. But you may want to see the last
outputs/prints. However, if you do a Ctrl-L/clear command, these
prints go away. In that case, what can you use so that you clear the
screen of the prints/outputs from last command. But in case you want
to see the last output, you can just go scroll up/pageup.

I looked the manpage but this info is not available.

   This would be a function of the terminal (xterm) not bash. Take a
   look at the options to xterm (man xterm).

   (There may not be an option that does what you want.)
