I was wondering if any of you know a commanline application like cp but which also have a status indication off how far along in the copying it is (I have a lot of DVD's with 6-10 big files on them which I occassionably copy to my harddrive).
I did actually, just for the fun of it, wirte a bash script to do this, which works quite fine, the output looks like this:
X@TLE32:~$ copy multimedia/video/0.33\ DVD/* .
COPIED: averylargefile.dat in 0m 56s at 26,6MB/s
FILE:11%, 35,4MB/s ALL FILES:22%, Passed: 1m 2s, Total: 4m 37s, Remaining: 3m 35s
As nice as that may look it is lacking several important options, most importantly the -r option.
Thanks in advance, Regards TLE02
PS: I found it difficult to search for this because searching, forums, the web or webpage with Linux apps, for words like "copy, cp, status" gives A LOT of hits but if I have missed an obvious way to find this plase let me know so that I may learn.
PPS: I know there's always the wonderfull Midnigth Commander (mc), but I just love that white text on black background CommandLlineInterface stuff.
