Hi there,
I've just come across http://clpbar.sourceforge.net/ and have installed it on my ubuntu server system.
I'd like to use it to show the progress of me compressing a file, using the following command:

tar czf /backup/file.tgz /home/User --exclude=/home/User/dir1
If anyone knows how to do this, I'd be incredibly greatful.
Thanks in advance, Daniel.
