       dbar  is  an application that generates semi graphical progress meters,
       from some values you supply to it.

       See the usage examples for a description of the expected input  format.


       A summary of options is included below.

       -max   Value to be considered 100% (default: 100)

       -min   Value to be considered 0% (default: 0)

       -w     Number of charcaters to be considered 100% in the bar  (default:
              25 )

       -s     Symbol represeting the percentage value in the bar  (default:  =

       -l     label to be prepended to the bar (default: ’’ )

       -nonl  no  new line, don’t put ’0 at the end of the bar    (default: do
              print ’0)


       Static 0% and 100% mark or single value input:
              Command: echo 25 | dbar -m 100 -l Sometext
              Output: Sometext  25% [======                   ]

       If your 100% mark changes dynamically or 2-values input:
              Command: echo "50 150" | dbar
              Output: 33% [========                 ]

       If your value range is not between [0, maxval] or 3-values input:
              Command: echo "50 -25 150" | dbar
              Output: 43% [===========              ]
