Thanks for your reply!
I’m on a Mac, running Aptana Studio 3. Does that help?
I’m afraid it doesn’t help me, since I’m not a Mac user. From what I
can see (although it’s hard to find any real information) Aptana
Studio seems to use the system’s built-in terminal, and while I’ve

actually printing a ^H / 0x08 / “\b” should work.
Hopefully someone else can help you.
By the way, your loop works fine in my Linux terminal.
