Basic progress bar timing question

P: n/a
Hello,
I want to ask this: How can i equalise my progress bar with the
external process until it finishes?

For example i have external process and the processing time differs
computer by computer. What should be the code to equalise progress bar
movement with the process?

Thanks.

How do you retrieve the progress information?

If you show the progress on one computer, I wouldn't care about the times on
other computers. With more background information it is easier to evaluate.

does this external process produce any information that can help? does
it put any output to standard that you could use to gauge as an
indicator?

You can always do what microsoft does.... :-)
Have a progress bar that slowly increments, and if it reaches the end,
it starts at the beginning again.

Its more of letting people know something is running so they dont get
ansi. Stop the progress bar when your function / sub is done.

The external app has console-based and it has built-in progress
indicator but i want to hide it and use my own progress bar... I
wonder how to manipulate a progess bar having increasing blocks with a
true ratio of external app's processing duration.

Could you define a simple code for this?
