Bleeding clutch

Can we get a "how to" to bleed the clutch system?
This is often overlooked and would be something very handy for a lot of people I reckon.
From what I remember seeing the bleed nipple is quite difficult to get to but it is possible.

The challenge with bleeding the clutch is the air bubbles want to float back up while you're trying to pump them down through the bleed nipple in the slave cylinder.

Some kind of either vacuum or pressurised bleeding tool would be of advantage.

I have reverse bled a few clutch slave cylinders in the past using an lever oil can.
Use a piece clear flexi-hose from the can filled will brake fluid, and place it on the slack bleed nipple.
Then pump the brake fluid out the can into the slave cylinder, thus pushing any air inline back up to the reservoir.
Make sure to leave a bit of space in the reservoir to take the brake fluid.
I found that I would pump the oil can, then nip the bleed nipple, then try the pedal a few times, then repeat until you get clutch action.
