The code prints out that it has done 100% twice ;-) this is probs bad.. Hows about changing it to show the bytes read / bytes left to read. This would also allow you to change the block size for larger files. The simplest way to do this would be to incr a variable after the sysread and print that rather than the percentage. I could not see why it was printing 100% twice but I did not look hard.

On a stylistic point, why did you use a sub to print out the message, and why did you pass that sub as an arg? Just interested to hear your rational.

Nice little bit of code, ++, I have added it to my personal repository of bits of useful stuff .. nice one. --

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
