I installed progress by brew install progress

% progress -v
progress version 0.13

And while I'm using mv command I used progress -w, but it failed with wrong permission error.

progress -w
No command currently running: cp, mv, dd, tar, cat, rsync, grep, fgrep, egrep, cut, sort, md5sum, sha1sum, sha224sum, sha256sum, sha384sum, sha512sum, adb, gzip, gunzip, bzip2, bunzip2, xz, unxz, lzma, unlzma, zcat, bzcat, lzcat, or wrong permissions.

Should I change permission somewhere to use progress? What am I doing wrong?

I'm using macOS Sierra version 10.12.6.

More Info

I executed progress -w just after mv command that moved about 30GB data from internal SSD to external HDD. And I checked after the error message of progress, the mv command was still working.

% which mv
/usr/local/opt/coreutils/libexec/gnubin/mv
% mv --version
mv (GNU coreutils) 8.27

I think it is working fine

progress -w
No command currently running: cp, mv, dd, tar, cat, rsync, grep, fgrep, egrep, cut, sort, md5sum, sha1sum, sha224sum, sha256sum, sha384sum, sha512sum, adb, gzip, gunzip, bzip2, bunzip2, xz, unxz, lzma, unlzma, zcat, bzcat, lzcat, or wrong permissions.

means there is no mv,cp process currently running

maybe the file is moved before you run progress -w

  • I'm pretty sure, the mv command was still active. I'll add details to my question. – ironsand Aug 19 '17 at 1:27
