Wget progress reporting
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:17:24 EDT
wget currently produces on-screen tick-marks for each kilobyte of
downloaded data. This can be informative, but it would be nice to have
options for this display. I'd propose two additional options:
1) Display a "." for each kilobyte, without the spacing and start/end marks
("33%", etc.) for reading by a program that spawns wget.
2) A progress bar based on the size of the file -- this doesn't need to be
any more complicated than the one used by rpm when using -h.
I doubt this is something we'd add here; you may want to contact the wget
