#!/usr/bin/perl #--------------------------------------------------------------------- +------- # Copyright (C) 2001-2003 Ed Halley #--------------------------------------------------------------------- +------- =head1 NAME peek - eat lines of standard input; output a one-line preview instead =head1 SYNOPSIS tar jcvf home.tar.bz2 /home | peek =head1 DESCRIPTION The peek process reads line-oriented text from the standard input, and outputs each line atop each other on the standard output. This is use +ful for reducing visual clutter in large list-oriented processing while keeping some visual feedback of the progress. There are a few options to customize the style, but the defaults are usually quite sufficient. =cut #--------------------------------------------------------------------- +-------- use Getopt::Long; use warnings; use strict; my $wide = 79; my $keep = 0; my %options = ( 'wide|width=i' => \$wide, 'keep!' => \$keep, ); GetOptions(%options) or die; $wide = 0 if $wide < 1; #--------------------------------------------------------------------- +-------- $| = 1; while (<>) { chomp; tr{\n\t}{\r }; printf "%-${wide}.${wide}s\r", $_; } print ' 'x$wide, "\r" if not $keep; print "\n" if $keep; exit(0); __END__ #--------------------------------------------------------------------- +-------- =head1 OPTIONS =over 4 =item B<--width>=[integer] Truncates the output lines to the given width, so as to avoid any line wrapping issues. Default is 79 characters wide. =item B<--keep> The final line of output is left visible on the display. =head1 BUGS The --width should default to the current terminal width, if it can be determined. This animation assumes that a carriage return (as opposed to a newline + or linefeed) will not erase the current line, but will return the output cursor to the beginning of the current line. This is a common convent +ion and holds true for many POSIX-styled terminals, but may not work for a +ll output devices. =head1 LICENSE Copyright (C) 2001-2003 Ed Halley <ed@halley.cc> This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify i +t under the same terms as Perl itself.
