    File Loading

    Hi,

    I have to do a syntax check of a big file. I want to report the status of the program in the same line. How do i do it in C++(Unix environment).

    eg:
    Checking 10% complete
    Checking 20% complete

    Actually this should be in the same line.


    Thanks

    The easiest way is to emit a "\r" to return to the start of the line, and then just overwrite what you've just written.
