[SHELL SCRIPT] Write at the right of the shell window
 
Hi!

Is there an easy way to write at the right of a shell window in shell script ? For example:
Code:

My service [at the left]:                                              OK [at the right]
I made a script that fill with space the space between the left and the right..
I've seen a script using printf option (certainly faster than filling with space)...
But, is there an escape char that does it ? like \e31m does red color and another one set a title to the window.

Does someone has a good page for escaped chars ? not only colors ?

Thanks
Creak
