    'cp' progres bar?

    Sometimes I need to copy\move rather big files (e.g. couple GB's or more) through bash script. Every time I must sit and wait thinking "how many time remains?..."
    Is there any way to see some sort of progress bar for this action, like in `mc` for example?

    As far as I know, there's no progression bar in cp.
    You can use cp -v to know what cp is actually doing.

    Something like this might work for you
