Progress

Progress is a Linux utility I wrote to print progress of pipe IO to stderr.

At the time (2002-2003) there were no such utilities. As of 2016, pv and the status=progress flag for dd make progress less interesting.

Progress is mostly for historical interest.

Example

$ tar czf - *.pdf | progress -m1 > my-pdfs.tar.gz
......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
$
