( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Dear Master Monks,

I've got a blank mind this morning, as I am trying to think how to print on my console but wipe it after each print.

I am just testing like so, but I can't think of a better way (console width independent) than just printing a certain amount of blanks (by adding print ' ' x 80;):

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; # Autoflush Output $| = 1; for my $num (1..100) { print 'Testing long line print', "\r"; print 'Printing over', "\r"; print $num, "\r"; sleep 1; }

Should I search for some Term::* module?

Thanks,
Gavin.
