This problem has been driving me crazy, I just can't seem to find anything in the Python docs.
I've been working on a script, It connects to a remote server and downloads multiple RAR files as a "job", it then extracts them to the correct place.
It works, but I get this for each file:
You can see the problem with that, it doesn't give you an idea of how much work it's done.
I've been trying to implement a status bar, I can get the percentage by downloading the files in chunks. But I don't know how to write this to part of the screen in the way that wget would ( I would get annoyed if it kept taking new lines everytime the percentage changed).
edit: I should also add that I can't use any advanced graphics or anything, it gets ran on a linux server via ssh.
