Advanced Copy is a mod for the GNU cp command-line copy utility. Currently it adds a progress bar to show you what's going on while you're waiting for the process to finish.

Be aware that this program is still in its earliest stages. There's still some bugs to be fixed and many cool features missing, but I promise to work on it in the months to come. If you have any suggestions, feel free to contact me via mail or ICQ (see bottom of page for details).


cp can be used just like before after applying the patch. The only change is the new -g (or --progress-bar) option:

$ cp -gR BigFolder NewFolder/
