Speed is a simple program to add a transfer meter to any console or terminal based copy program.
Speed allows you to easily report Kilobytes or Megabytes per second when using programs that do not report file transfer speeds (such as 'cp' or 'ftp').
./speed [ -u interval ] -f filename
./speed [ -u interval ] -- < copy_program > [args] /path/to/file /destination/file
< copy_program > is the program we should use to copy the file
[args] options arguments to < copy_program >
What's New in This Release:
· A progress bar has been added.
· The last argument to cp can be either a file or directory.
