I was curious if anyone knows if there are any methods to do the following in java. I'm writing a terminal based program in java, and it will be doing incremental updates. I want to output to the terminal the percentage done, but to replace the last output. For example: $>java jprog Percent completed...0% ... $>java jprog Percent completed...5%. Instead of $>java jprog Percent completed...0% Percent completed...5% ... I checked the java API's a little, in the PrintStream and OutputStream classes, but couldn't find any methods like that. Anybody know? Thanks.
