Hi,

I've got a program here that prints out a percentage of it's
completion. Currently with my implimentation it prints like this:
0%
1%
2%
3%
4%

etc taking up lots and lots of lines of output... So, how can I make it
write the percentage on the same line eg. 
while working:
  print percent
every time the line print percent is ran it should delete the old
percentage from the screen, replacing it with the new one, so as to only
use up one line... Basically I'm just printing a string of text to the
screen and every time my print command is ran I would like the old text
to be removed and my new text added (talking about the one line of the
screen here)... This is a command line program, under linux...

Thanks,

Daniel.
