clear_template( : : TemplateID : )

This operator modifies the state of the following input parameter:
If the number of the template is valid, the operator clear_template returns the value 2 (H_MSG_TRUE). If necessary an exception is raised.
create_template, create_template_rot, read_template, write_template
