Viewing the MySQL dump import progress

A really useful linux shell hint from someone elses blog… stumbled across browsing recommended in google reader:

Viewing the MySQL dump import progress.

Small linux utility called ‘bar’ which provides a progress bar for any program that can use a pipe for input…. e.g.:

bar if=foo.sql | mysql -u user -p database

Nice… dd esq CLI by the look of it.
