STATUSBAR(8)STATUSBAR(8)NAMEstatusbar - display a bar graph status window
aux/statusbar [ -kt ] [ -w minx,miny,maxx,maxy ] title
Aux/statusbar reads textual status lines from standard input, convert‐
ing them into a continuously updated bar graph displayed in a new win‐
dow on the screen. The title is displayed on a line above the bar
graph. Each input line is two space-separated decimal numbers: the
numerator and denominator of a fraction.
Statusbar exits when it reaches end-of-file on standard input. Typing
DEL or control-C will also cause it to exit.
The options are:
-k do not allow typing to cause statusbar to exit
-t print an ASCII status bar to standard output, using backspace to
-w set the coordinates of the statusbar window created
The -v option to hget(1) causes it to print status lines suitable for
input to statusbar.
