| This is not a problem of MzScheme, but a problem of the terminal.  The
| same will happen if you use any program that spits out stuff in the
| background.  One solution for this is to not use a terminal, but some
| program that will do things properly.  DrScheme looks a little
| confusing but it gets the job done.  If you want a more `raw'
| interface, you can use shell mode in Emacs.  In both of these cases,
| typing does not actually go to the program untill you hit enter, and
| in the meanwhile the program (DrScheme or Emacs) knows to show the
| output in the same place while collecting your input afterwards.

Bleh, thanks, suspected such a possibility. So there's no way, to, oh, I
dunno, set the cursor at the beginning of the line right before a
display, display with a linefeed, then return the cursor to the end of
whatever's there? (ie, the front of the input text)

Oh, btw, forgot to mention, using v209, on winxp.

And no big deal, basically, just for the heck of it, to practice and to
experiment with the mzscheme's tcp stuff, wanted to try making a crude
chat proggie. (ie, nothing of great import)

Thanks again anyways though. :)
