I’ve had a silent, long-standing complaint about some of the core utilities in Linux. Where some are occasionally unexpressive, others are downright antisocial.
cp and mv are the main culprits. Even with their “verbose” flags, what you get is little more than one file name pointing at another. That’s no improvement.
Advanced Copy is very much an improvement though.
That’s the way it should be! That’s what I’m after: Transfer rates. File sizes. A proper progress bar and percent complete, with a second readout for overall progress, as needed. 😀
Now before all the Unix purists come along and bite my head off, let me just say there are many tools in the box, and this one I prefer. I know about pv and other piping toys, but I’d rather just work with this.
Fair enough? 😉
