    What's to know? Just PRINT / PRINTF the escape sequences and the cursor will obey -- assuming the caller has ANSI support, which you chould be able to check using ARS as in

    COMPARE_ARS
    IF_TRUE
    # clear screen and home cursor
    PRINT "\x1B[2J"
    END_IF

    Search the WWW for details on what ANSi codes are valid.

    The easiest way is probably to use the ANSI cursor-position @-codes. See v310_new.txt for details.

    I looked through the v310_new.txt and it mentions the new codes, but not what they are.

    I looked through the v310_new.txt and it mentions the new codes, but not wha they are.

    Sorry, it was actually in v300_new.txt:

    o New @-codes:
    LOCAL-IP displays current local IP address
    CRLF carriage return/line-feed pair
    UP Move cursor up one row (ANSI)
    UP:n Move cursor up n rows (ANSI)
    DOWN Move cursor down one row (ANSI)
    DOWN:n Move cursor down n rows (ANSI)
    RIGHT Move cursor right one column (ANSI)
    RIGHT:n Move cursor right n columns (ANSI)
    LEFT Move cursor left one column (ANSI)
    LEFT:n Move cursor left n columns (ANSI)
    GOTOXY:x,y Move cursor to x/y (1-based) (ANSI)
    PUSHXY Save current cursor position (ANSI)
    POPXY Restore saved cursor position (ANSI)
