eclipse bug #76936. i wouldn't count on them to fix it, and there are no workarounds listed.

you might have luck finding a plugin that contributes a more advanced console.


use: system.out.print("\b ") inside the while loop, instead of system.out.print('\b');


fixed, eclipse mars.

note, i wouldn't use it to do constant updating, as the eclipse console lags.


now they fixed it, but it's disabled by default. you should enable it via interpret ascii control characters in console preferences.


well, it's true you can't use backspace \b to remove the displayed progress, but you could remove it by clearing the console with a loop calling println. of course this kluge won't clear your log file!
