in reply to Progress Bar in Perl script

If you are on a system that supports zenity - it is yet another option. It uses a real progress bar which may not be what you want (will only work on your local machine). Here is a very long one liner that makes the use of most zenity progress options (you could shorten it to zenity --progress --pulsate):

perl -e 'open my $fh, "|-", q{zenity --title=Working --width=400 --pro +gress --text="Still going..." --percentage=50 --no-cancel --auto-kill + --auto-close}; select $fh; $|=1; select(undef,undef,undef,.1),print +$fh "$_\n#Now on $_...\n" for 1..100'

Here is the code broken out into more of a program.

use IO::Handle; # for older perls use Time::HiRes qw(usleep); my $pid = open my $fh, "|-", q{zenity --title=Working --width=400 --pr +ogress --percentage=50 --no-cancel --auto-kill --auto-close} or die "Could not open zenity: $!"; $fh->autoflush(1); for my $i (1 .. 100) { usleep 100_000; # microseconds print $fh "$i\n"; # move the bar print $fh "#Now on $i...\n"; # update the text print "We've done $i\n"; if ($i >= 50) { #kill 2 $pid; # not as portable print $fh "100\n"; # more portable with --auto-kill last; } }

my @a=qw(random brilliant braindead); print $a[rand(@a)];
