Graphic status bar when transfering files using shell commands?

How can I do this? When I use the "cp" or "cp -r" commands to copy files/directories it won't display anything to let me know of the status. I have to manually go to where I copied the file, click on the file, and then read the status info from there. Any help?

Didn't help. But I think I found the answer to my own question. Clpbar seems to work fine.
