This tool can be described as a Tiny, Dirty, Linux-and-OSX-Only
C command that looks for coreutils basic commands (cp, mv, dd, tar,
gzip/gunzip, cat, etc.) currently running on your system and
displays the percentage of copied data. It can also show estimated
time and throughput, and provide a "top-like" mode (monitoring).
It simply scans `/proc` for interesting commands, and then looks at
directories `fd` and `fdinfo` to find opened files and seek positions,
and reports status for the largest file.
It's very light, and compatible with virtually any command.
This program was formerly known as 'cv' on github.
