Thank you for this notice. When I read pv's manpage, it appears as more featureful than bar. I use currently bar to monitor the cloning of USB sticks, as a replacement of dd to dump 4GB of an image into a flash memory driver. Is pv able to do the same? for example how can I use pv to monitor the transfer which is done by modifying a command such as: dd if=someImageFile of=/dev/disk/by-id/usb-TheNiceStick_0878101B77D1D977-0:0 with bar, the replacement would be: bar -s 4G -if someImageFile -of /dev/disk/by-id/usb-TheNiceStick_0878101B77D1D977-0:0 Best regards, Georges.
