Progress bar script

The below script will help you see progress bar on your terminal. When we are doing some big task and it seems that the processing time will take some time in the background then we can use the progress bar on foreground. The below code will show progress status from 1 to 100

echo "Progress : "; // 5 characters of padding at the end
for ($i=0 ; $i<=100 ; $i++) {
echo "\033[5D"; // Move 5 characters backward
echo str_pad($i, 3, ' ', STR_PAD_LEFT) . " %"; // Output is always 5 characters long
sleep(1); // wait for a while, so we see the animation
