mv with progress bar


Does anyone know if there is a mv command which displays a progress bar, like wget?

Catenate with progress, found in this page: http://www.ex-parrot.com/~chris/software.html is close to what you are looking for.

try RSYNC

with a simple alias in your .bash_alias you'll get the same functionality your looking for..

alias rsynccopy="rsync --partial --progress --append --rsh=ssh -r -h "
alias rsyncmove="rsync --partial --progress --append --rsh=ssh -r -h --remove-sent-files"

obviously you can do it straight from the shell like this

user@server:/$ rsync --partial --progress --append --rsh=ssh -r -h --remove-sent-files SOURCE_FILE DESTINATION

OR ( with the alias )

user@server:/$ rsyncmove SOURCE_FILE DESTINATION

some versions of RSYNC use a different syntax..
check the "rsync --help" for more info ..

Great....but this is a FOUR YEAR OLD THREAD, and the OP wasn't looking for info on rsync.

Welcome (!) to LQ and thanks for giving detailed information to help others -- that's what the community part of FOSS is all about

Someone netsearching for something like the OP's question might have found this thread and have their question answered by your post.

On the other hand, here are a couple of reasons for not adding to old threads:
  • They get stale -- software itself changes and older links are less likely to work.
  • Someone netsearching for a solution might only look at threads marked SOLVED. The older a thread, the less likely that the OP will come back and mark it SOLVED.

Please read the "How to ask questions the smart way" thread that's on here. Really, posting an answer to a 4 year old thread is pointless. The OP will have either figured it out, or have moved on by then. Asking in the thread "Hey, I'm looking for the same thing, anyone figure this out?" would have been far better.

The 'answer' you posted did not address the original question in any way, which is the actual issue.

And no offence, but PLEASE don't use texting speak.

IMO it's hard to read and very immature and annoying.

Thanks talavishay, I came here through Google and this was indeed what I was looking for. Rsync is great, you can also use it for this purpose.

This is also my first post here, so I also registered here because of your input. So..not pointless at all.

TY!

Hey talavishay, I too came to this thread looking for a way to move with a progress bar. I hadn't thought of using rsync, so thank you.

If you haven't already abandoned this community, I hope you read this and stay to see its good side. It can be hard to contribute to something like Linux when sometimes small people yell at you for no reason. The Linux community, like every community, is full of lots of different people, and I hope you don't let a loud irritated few speak for the quiet grateful many.

For what it's worth, MTK is right in that people will take you more seriously if you use proper grammar and spelling. It's your choice, but since it's a convention basically everywhere important you're likely to communicate, I think it's a habit worth getting into.

Anyway, thanks again for your efforts. You've helped me and probably many others.^

I also found this thread via a Google search and found talavishay's answer to be satisfactory. As such I registered on the forum just to post this reponse. I tend to find the reasoning as to why people shouldn't post answers on old threads quite humorous.

As is the case with this thread, people often use Google to find answers to their questions which can lead them to old threads or blog postings. This is the same reason I often update my old blog posts with new information or links to updated information.
