Hello, I have a question. How do I clear whatever is printed to the serial port?

Depends entirely on what device is at the other end of the serial connection accepting and displaying the characters.

The built-in "Serial Monitor" appears not to have any such capability.

Oh. Well nevermind then, I can't really right programs beside windows batch, and I'm not good at that.

or Serial.print("\n");

\n is the code for newline.

Serial.print("hello\n");
will produce exactly the same output as
Serial.println("hello");

sometimes it's easier to use the newline character as for example  if you want to print several lines with
one statement like:

Serial.print("Hello\nMy name is Henry\nWhat is yours?\n>");
which will produce the following output:
Hello
My name is Henry
What is yours?

If you want it to work the same on every computer, use "\r\n" instead of "\n": then it'll display properly on windows, linux, and mac.
