Copy with a Progress Bar
This is something I’ve always thought about looking up myself. Great tip for using
pv command for seeing copy progress.

Only problem: what package in CentOS includes

The package “pv” provides “pv” in CentOS 5.x
It is available in the rpmforge repos.

Thanks! It turns out it was in the ‘rpmforge’ repository. It does not ship with default CentOS.
