cp progress bar


Hi,
I have to copy large files from a CD to the hard disk.

I want to use a progress bar to display the status of
copying the files.

Any one has ideas about implementing this in shell script.

One may use a GUI based file manager for that. I.e. Nautilus (Gnome) or XFE (http://roland65.free.fr/xfe/), etc.

thanks for your advice

i have found a sample code in this forum

Code:
#!/bin/bash

files=`ls -l | wc -l`
copied=1
clear
echo "                     Please wait, copy in progress"
while [ $files -ge $copied ] ;do
   pct=$((100 * copied / $files))
   copied=$((copied + 1))
   echo -en ".$pct%\b\b\b"  ## you can use # or anything instead of dots 
   sleep 1
done
  echo -e "\n"
  echo "                     The operation is complete"
  echo -e "\n"
but i don't know how to modify this code so that i can use it to copy large files from a CD to the hard disk and at the same time showing the progress bar.

anyone can help me, please...

Here's another sample which maybe abit more usefull.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
# File copy with progress indicators
# Example: ./test original_file destination_file

usage()
{
   echo "Usage: $0 original_file destination_file"
   exit 1;
}

test $# == 2 || usage

echo Preparing to copy
orig_size=$(stat -c %s $1)

>$2
dest_size=0
cp -f $1 $2 &

while [ $orig_size -gt $dest_size ] ; do
   dest_size=$(stat -c %s $2)
   pct=$((( 100 * $dest_size ) / $orig_size ))

if [ $pct -lt 10 ] ; then
   echo -en "#  $pct%\b\b\b\b"
else
   echo -en "#  $pct%\b\b\b\b\b"
fi
sleep 1
done
echo
And here is another....
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# Example: ./test original_file destination_file
usage()
{
   echo "Usage: $0 original_file destination_file"
   exit 1;
}

test $# == 2 || usage
orig_size=$(stat -c %s $1)

>$2
dest_size=0
cp -f $1 $2 &

while [ $orig_size -gt $dest_size ] ; do
   dest_size=$(stat -c %s $2)
   pct=$((( 69 * $dest_size ) / $orig_size ))

    echo -en "\r["
    for j in `seq 1 $pct`; do
        echo -n "="
    done
    echo -n ">"
    for j in `seq $pct 68`; do
        echo -n "."
    done
    echo -n "] "
    echo -n $((( 100 * $pct ) / 69 ))
    echo -n "%"
done
echo

Example: ./test original_file destination_file

This part is the name of my script ------> ./test
To use ./test , I made it execute with the command: chmod +x test
or you could use the method of : sh test

original_file ---------> Is actually a directory in your case.
that is /mnt/cdrom

destination_file --------> Is actually a directory in your case.
~/Desktop/CDcontents/


So, it might look like this...
./test /mnt/cdrom ~/Desktop/CDcontents/

Because it's a directory, you may need to play with the copy statement. Look into man cp for that. Maybe something like.....
cp -R $1 $2 &

Here is something that look similar, "catenate with progress":

Cool

You can use MC (Midnight Commander). The worlds best console file manager.

To install mc on ubuntu, enable the universe repository from /etc/apt/sources.list by removing the # before the universe repository.

Then simply say
sudo apt-get install mc

and then type mc on the command line to open up the colsole app.

This works well for file->file, but file->directory will result in an endless loop you have to ctrl-c out of:


Code:
[mk6032@linuxquestions]# cp movie.avi /srv/nfs/media/video/
Preparing to copy
/root/cp_progress.sh: line 16: /srv/nfs/media/video/: Is a directory
###########################################################  0%
[mk6032@linuxquestions]#
It needs to run a check on the destination first:
if [ -d $2 ] then ....

Thumbs up code improved

Here it's a little improvement of the script; it should work if the second field is a directory now.


Code:
--- cp_p.org	2008-11-07 10:47:25.934417154 +0100
+++ cp_p2	2008-11-07 10:40:17.674417698 +0100
@@ -8,13 +8,17 @@
 
 test $# == 2 || usage
 orig_size=$(stat -c %s $1)
+if [ -d "$2" ]
+then d="$2/$1"
+else d="$2"
+fi
+>"$d"
 
->$2
 dest_size=0
-cp -f $1 $2 &
+cp -f $1 "$d" &
 
 while [ $orig_size -gt $dest_size ] ; do
-   dest_size=$(stat -c %s $2)
+   dest_size=$(stat -c %s "$d")
    pct=$((( 69 * $dest_size ) / $orig_size ))
 
     echo -en "\r["

>d$

It should create an empty destination file; the script also works without it.
Try it!

rsync -rv <src> <dst> --progress:

-r for recursive (if you want to copy entire directories)
src for the source file (or wildcards)
dst for the destination
--progress to show a progress bar

Honestly, rsync is only a little slower than cp for local copies and is so much better featured.

pv

You can also look at pv (Pipe Viewer), but honestly, for the specific solution you're looking for--copying a tree of files off a CD-ROM with a progress bar--rsync is the best solution, as nonzenze said.
