in reply to overwritting print in same line

If you just want to add dots then combine switching off buffering output with not printing "\n"
$|=1; [some loop condition] print "."; [do other stuff] [end loop]
This will print dots next to each other which maybe close to what you are asking for.
Depending on what you are doing you may only want to print a dot every n iterations
$|=1; $counter=0; [some loop condition] print "." unless $count++ % n; [do other stuff] [end loop]
