a) Clear everything right after login. Put the command "clear"
in your ~/.login, or /etc/csh.login for all users.
b) Clear everything right after logout, so the new login will
get a blank screen. Put the command "clear" in your ~/.logout,
or /etc/csh.logout for all users.
This assumes that you have the standard dialog shell csh. If
you're using bash, you need to modify its respective files,
~/.profile or ~/.bashrc - I don't know, I'm using csh. :-)
