when I print some texts to stdout using print function, it
seems that I have to put "\n" at the end of string in order
for the texts to flush to the screen.  Is there a function
to flush the buffer to the screen such as fflush in "C"?

Thanks

# keep in mind that if you print to stdout, stderr, the OS's I/O
# system has a buffer too which needs to be flushed
