Setting (HPOS stream) w/o getting blank characters

Is there a nice way to set (HPOS stream) {\it without} having $n$ blank
characters output to get the stream to that position?

The problem is in dealing with user i/o, where the user supplies a CR
which doesn't affect the position of (TERMINAL-OUTPUT).
