I have modified a backup script which backs up data to a cd using tar in red hat ent 4 .
Is there a command wherein i can output the percentage of data being proceessed while the backup is being done.In other words a progress bar which displays the % .
i tried using the bar command ,but m not succseeful.
if you use the 7zip compressor it gives you a procentile indicator by default.
oh and superior compression but that's secondary for the issue at hand.
Why are you not using Fedora Core?
