NAME

Acme::ProgressBar - a simple progress bar for the patient

VERSION

version 1.129

SYNOPSIS

 use Acme::ProgressBar;
 progress { do_something_slow };

DESCRIPTION

Acme::ProgressBar provides a simple solution designed to provide accurate countdowns. No progress bar object needs to be created, and all the calculation of progress through total time required is handled by the module itself.

PERL VERSION SUPPORT

This module is shipped with no promise about what version of perl it will require in the future. In practice, this tends to mean "you need a perl from the last three years," but you can't rely on that. If a new version of perl ship, this software may begin to require it for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.

FUNCTIONS

progress

 progress { unlink $_ for <*> };
 progress { while (<>) { $ua->get($_) } };
 progress { sleep 5; }

There is only one function exported by default, progress. This function takes a coderef as its lone argument. It will execute this code and display a simple progress bar indicating the time required for ten iterations through the code.

TODO

  • allow other divisions of time (other than ten)
