Wipe the screen in MSH

MSH has a function Clear-host (alias CLS) for this,
only this one is a bit more colorfull ;-)

I think I had one on my Atari, that did some more modes,
like Horizontal - diagonal - square etc.

that's where the Mode param is for, also the speed and Colors could be configurable, but at second tought I stop here, leaving it parked for a while, but I'm sure I will come into a situation when I realy need them sometime in the future, so then I can quickly make those additions to the function and will post them to the blog also, but I don't know exactly when that will happen, till then feel free to let your own wipe-screen fantasies go ;-)

PS. if you think of a nice one feel free to leave it in a Comment.
