Positioning System.out.print

Question:
How can I position the System.out.print cursor when printing to the DOS window? Specifically, how can I print to specific positions on the DOS window without printing one continuous scrolling screen?

Answer:
Java does not provide curses like screen control. To position the screen output cursor requires the writing of native code. Java application input and output is best handled through AWT and JFC components. You've hit on one of Java's weaknesses. Someone may have already written a set of console I/O libraries for DOS and Unix, so you may want to search the Web first before rolling your own code.
