    I bet there is a way to do it using wget!
    I havent really thought about it though.

    then I wondered maybe other commands have the progess bar... like cat, mv or something else.
    then I found this:

    maybe that will be helpful!

    rsync wins again!

    When this topic first came up I thought "Isn't there a command line switch for that?" But I checked cp(1) and saw nothing, so chalked it up to poor memory. For some reason the mention of wget caused it to dawn on me that I had been thinking of rsync in the first place.

    You are right. rsync is the 'power' alternative to cp as always

    would you know where I can get the *.c source?

    The source is included in the message you linked. It's a patch to cp/mv code. However, it appears this patch has been rejected by GNU coreutils developers.
