Which buffer are you trying to clear?  Transmit or Receive?


Generally transmit doesn't need clearing because anything in it usually gets sent out right away.  I rarely need to clear the receive buffer.  But an easy way to clear it is to just read all the bytes in it and just do nothing with the data.
