Show me where, maybe?
There, all my names are Lua now!
@FeynmanLogomaker: Carriage return is an old-fashioned way of saying "enter" (the key), from the days when we used typewriters. The carriage (the big thing that moved along the line pressing the letters to the paper) had to be moved back to the left side of the paper when you finished a line, otherwise it would just keep typing letters over one spot.
@Jamie-Hyneman (View Post)
Carriage return actually does not behave in that way. A carriage return in this sense is simply the carriage of the typewriter returning to its home position, and not actually advancing to the next line.
Carriage returns can be useful for programming a status line without having to pull in an entire support library like ncurses.
EDIT: It looks like the TPT console doesn't implement \b or \r, which is a shame. Also doesn't look like it implements any escape sequences (big surprise there). Having at least \27[2J and \27[#m would be pretty nice.
Do you think TPT will ever implement those characters?
Edit: I have realized this is from October 2013, and not 2014, sorry for necroing
should add boolean values
