dbar - ASCII progresbar


echo <percentage> | dbar [options] <indicator text>


dbar lets you define static 0% and 100% marks or you can define these marks dynamically at
runtime. Static and dynamic marks can be mixed, in this case the value specified at
runtime will have a higher priority.

You can specify ranges of numbers, negative, positive or ranges with a negative min value
and positive max value.

All numbers are treated as double precision floating point, i.e. the input is NOT limited
to integers.


-l Label to be prepended to the bar (default: "" ).

no new line, don't put '\n' at the end of the bar (default: do print "\n")

Value to be considered 100% (default: 100).

Value to be considered 0% (default: 0).

-s Symbol represeting the percentage value in the meter (default: "=").

-w Number of charcaters to be considered 100% in the meter (default: 25)


Static 100% mark or single value input:

echo 25 | dbar -max 100 -l text

Output: text 25% [====== ]

If your 100% mark changes dynamically or 2-values input:

echo "50 150" | dbar
| |
| |__ max value
|__ value to display

Output: 33% [======== ]

If your value range is not between [0, maxval] or 3-values input:

echo "50 -25 150" | dbar
| | |
| | |__ max value 100% mark
| |
| |_____ min value 0% mark
|________ value to display

Output: 43% [=========== ]

Multiple runs:

for i in 2 20 50 75 80; do echo $i; sleep 1; done | dbar | dzen2

Output: Find out yourself.
