Progress Barby jrm (Novice)
|on Jan 09, 2002 at 06:09 UTC||Need Help??|
jrm has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I would like to add a simple progress bar/indicator to a script. For example, print a %age progress of a for loop. My specific questions are:
- how do I print the figure in the same place on the screen for each iteration.
- is there a module for more fluffy dispays, e.g. a bar graph with automatic scale calibration etc.
p.s. my boss says "this is business critical and if it is not done by the time he gets in in the moring I have to stay at my desk for another 70 hours".
