Is there anyway i can use Whirley with File::Copy ?

I want to show a progress meter (percentage) while moving a file.
I found but that doesn't use File::Copy and dont know if it working for large files.
Or can i do something like;

my $sizetarget= (-s $destination); my $sizesource= (-s $source); my $percentage=""; while (move($source,$destination) || print "$!\n") { $sizetarget = (-s $destination); $percentage = ($sizetarget / $sizesource)*100; print "[$percentage\%]\r"; }
hmm nope that doesnt work.. anyways you get my point.
Hope anyone can give me an example or a hand :).

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).
