Runnging scripts: blank out start/end message of scripts?

While using CHDK on various cams, I found the standard start/end message of the scripts annoying at some applications. Is there any mean to blank out or suppress this messages on the console? (or even the complete console output e.g. for scripts that are finally tested an do not require output e.g. for debugging any more).

If not, this feature could be an enhancement request to build into the CHDK menue at Various settings -> console.
What do the developers think about this request?

You should be able to get rid of the started message with cls(), obviously can't do the same with end.

Does the message interfere with your work in some way, or is it just an aesthetic complaint? I'm not against making it configurable in some way but I'd be more inclined to spend time on it if it's actually causing a problem.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thanks a lot für the cls() hint.

I admit the use case is somewhat special: the script I'm running makes some quick changes via clicks to the Canon Set menu. Because this changes happen at the very lower part of the display, those are partly covered by the start/end message.

Anyway, I would not ask developers to spend effort on features that are not of common interest for at least some other users.
