bash + manipulate stdout to console


Hi
I have a script which produces a lot of text on stdout, i want to display both the stdout and a progress bar that will always be visible as the script runs. Clearly the progress bar gets pushed out of the console by the stdout text so how can i 'reserve' a line for the progress bar so it will always be visible ?

Anyone know a technique to do this please ?
