Copymon package provides means to monitor a copy operation (of directories and files) and present a progress bar during the operation.
Each copy operation is divieded into two main stages:
- Metadata scan stage, which generate information about the files to be copied.
- The copy itself. This package does not implement a the copy operation but rather uses external programs like rsync,cp and tar to perform the actual copy.
If you downloaded the source of copymon just do the following:
cd copymon python setup.py sdist pip install dist/copymon-0.1.0.tar.gz
cd copymon python setup.py install
The install process will install the program copymon.py in /usr/local/bin
- Copy of a directory using cp as the copy command
copymon.py --cp /usr/share/doc /tmp/doc
- Running in scan only mode:
copymon.py --only-scan --cp /usr/share/doc /tmp/doc
