'\r' in python 3.7.2, 3.7.4, 3.8.2, 2.x versions doesn't give the desired output
Eg:
print("computer\rscience")
The expected output of the above code is : sciencer
But it displays : computerscience without functioning of \r

Clearing the screen of IDLE interactive mode using the following code:
import os
os.system("cls")
It doesn't clear the screen in Windows

See #23220 for backspace and return behavior.
