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

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

score:3

fixed, eclipse mars.

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

score:5

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

score:8

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!
