shokin touch, to print as you mentioned, we need to know the console size (columns). this can be done like shown in the sample code: (credits to Jayakrishna🇮🇳 for mentioning string.rjust(...) ! ) import os size = os.get_terminal_size() # size holds the values for columns ( size[0] ) and for rows (size[1] ) print("this is the end".rjust(size[0])) # the number of rows and columns in the console depends on the screen size, font size and font type.

I think this is exactly what you want, but unfortunately it doesn't run at Sololearn. https://code.sololearn.com/cD4B5NOP1JBv/?ref=app

@Jay Matthews @Mafdi No I mentioned that I don't mean at the end of string , I literally mean at the end of the one line in python console, you can imagine it like all the line except of last character is space and last character is something I want like asterisk
