 === Carriage Returns === === Carriage Returns ===
 If you wish to send a traditional "​carriage return"​ character to the client terminal (i.e. move the cursor to the far left column without advancing to the next line) it is recommended that you use an output method/​function that supports [[custom:​Ctrl-A codes]] and you send the Ctrl-A ''​['' ​ sequences //instead of// an ASCII 13 (''​\r''​) character. This is required for PETSCII terminal compatibility,​ where an ASCII 13 character performs a complete "​newline"​ sequence (the equivalent of ''​\r\n''​) on the client terminal. If you wish to send a traditional "​carriage return"​ character to the client terminal (i.e. move the cursor to the far left column without advancing to the next line) it is recommended that you use an output method/​function that supports [[custom:​Ctrl-A codes]] and you send the Ctrl-A ''​['' ​ sequences //instead of// an ASCII 13 (''​\r''​) character.
