Well, 
I don't think what he is trying to find is just the info about
clrscr()....
but the info about how to detect the OS and/or compiler releases from
a program.
The best answer to this could be provided by Mr. DJ Delorie
himself....

My interpretation is that there are certain COMMAND - LINE MACROS
(similar to #define's) defined / provided by the executable(???)
script which invokes the compiler.

For example, there is one script - I don't remember the filename - in
DJGPP environment which sets these parameters like the type of machine
(-D__i386__ -Di386), the operating system being used (-D__MSDOS__
-DMSDOS) kind of things. I think DJ should be able to throw some more
light on it.....
