I know that wget have some options to display or not the progress bars.
I would like to display the wget transfer in a more short way, or.. a percent or something dynamic but not taking so much space like the classic wget output because i have to insert it into a script with already it's output.
My goal is to display to the user that the file is being downloaded, maybe even it's speed but not ruining too much the overall look of the script.
Important: My wget passages are inside an if then else script, so I have to retain the error detection functionality.
My script have a block that looks like:
if wget -O filename http://someurl then some_action else some_other_action fi
Can someone provide me some funny examples of customized progress data or bars with this refinements? Thank you ;)
