var client = dgram.createSocket("udp4");
var server = dgram.createSocket("udp4");
  
// Handling the message event

  // Creating and initializing a
  // WriteStream object
  let WriteStream = process.stdout;
  
  // Moving cursor to a specified position
  // by using cursorTo() API
  const col = WriteStream.cursorTo(10, 7, ()=>{  
  });
  
  // Displaying the result
  process.stdout.write(msg + col);
  
  // Exiting process
