Pipe Viewer project is a terminal-based tool for monitoring the progress of data through a pipeline.
It can be inserted into any normal pipeline between two processes to give a visual indication of how quickly data is passing through, how long it has taken, how near to completion it is, and an estimate of how long it will be until completion.
pv is now considered to be stable code: it appears to work reliably on systems it has been tested on.

· SIGINT, SIGHUP, and SIGTERM are trapped so that IPCs are cleaned up on exit.
