progress(1) and "*.tar.xz" sets
Has any consideration been given to augmenting the 'progress(1)' utility
to handle more compression formats than just "gzip"?
When updating, I have been in the habit of using something like:
for file in foo.tgz bar.tgz ; do
progress -ezf $file tar xpf - -C /targetdir
With the upcoming move to "xz" compression for release sets in -current,
it would be nice to let 'progress' handle "xz" decompression so a more-
or-less accurate ETA and progress bar could be displayed.
As it is now, deferring decompression to 'tar xpf - --xz ...' would
not display accurate ETA/progress bar and essentially eliminate the
utility of 'progress'.
Thanks for your consideration.
