Commands tagged bar graph (1)

  • WIDTHL=10 and WIDTHR=60 are setting the widths of the left and the right column/bar. BAR="12345678" etc. is used to create a 80 char long string of "="s. I didn't know any shorter way. If you want to pipe results into it, wrap the whole thing in ( ... ) I know that printing bar graphs can be done rather easily by other means. Here, I was looking for a Bash only variant.
