RESET(1) User Commands RESET(1)
reset - reset the terminal
reset calls tput(1) with the clear, rmacs, rmm, rmul, rs1, rs2, and rs3 arguments. This causes tput to send appropriate reset strings to the terminal based on information in /etc/termcap (for the GNU or BSD tput) or in the terminfo database (for the ncurses tput). This sequence seems to be sufficient to reset a Linux VC when it starts printing "funny-looking" characters. For good measure, stty(1) is called with the sane argument in an attempt to get cooked mode back.
clear(1), stty(1), tput(1)
