Progress bars and cdrecord


I'm looking at switching my cdr backup script over to using python and
pygtk, mainly as an exercise in learning python. I already have an iso
file created by a cron job every night, and would like to see how easy
it would be to create a simple gtk+ window that shows a progress bar
updated by the cdrecord output.

Has anyone done anything like this before, hopefully with a useful
pointer or two?

Hi there I am working on a program where the user should be able to import some CSV files. With my set of test data, it takes about 2 minutes to import, while it is importing the program sort of freezes. Therefore i would like to open a little window with a progress bar in it that shows how far the import has come.

I have a couple of progress bars that indicate the progress of a math-intensive application. They are working well. The only problem is that the progress indicator is gray in color. Is it possible to change the color of the bars - they're usually blue in other applications? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm using VB.Net Standard, 2003.

Hi, I have a small application, written in Python, that uses threads. The application uses function foo() to download files from the web. As it reads data from the web server, it runs a progress bar by calling an install of a progress bar class. When using threads, I get the problem that the progress bar gets over-written by the download progress of files from other threads.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
