CleanSlate Package

Revision date


The purpose of CleanSlate is to provide an easy and complete way to accomplish two goals: 1) free memory, and 2) clear values of symbols, so that tripping over some preexisting definition for a symbol is not a problem. The basic command exported from the package, CleanSlate, tries to do everything possible to return the kernel to the state it was in when the CleanSlate.m package was initially loaded.
