// Node.js program to demonstrate the
// writeStream.clearLine() method
 
// Importing dgram module
var dgram = require('dgram');
 
// Creating and initializing client
// and server socket
var client = dgram.createSocket("udp4");
var server = dgram.createSocket("udp4");
 
// Handling the message event
server.on("message", function (msg) {
 
  // Creating and initializing a
  // WriteStream object
  let WriteStream = process.stdout;
 
  // Clearing the line
  // by using clearLine() API
  const col = WriteStream.clearLine();
 
  // Displaying the result
  process.stdout.write(msg + col);
 
  // Exiting process
  process.exit();
})// Binding server with port
.bind(1234, () => {
