I requested this ability for MUclient, and I'm really greatful for it.

I have a question concerning it: when will it be added to the GUI World options pages? Were you going to add it? Did you forget, dealing with all the requests and bugs and ...?

If \r represents the carriage-return character (hex 0D) then this is the difference:

Option not set:

MUD sends: aaaa\rbbbb
You see: aaaabbbb

Option set:

MUD sends: aaaa\rbbbb
You see: bbbb

In other words, the \r character "returns the carriage" (in typewriter terminology) to the start of the line, so that subsequent characters write over what is already there.

In fact, in MUSHclient it also clears the line, so that if what follows is less long that what was there before whatever is after the carriage return is still all that you see on the line.

Gotcha. Wasnt sure if this was about that, or some other weird thing.

Input crossed my mind, which is why it made no sense. Obviously hitting enter would clear the line. Thats why I asked.
