Copy with a Progress Bar

This is something I’ve always thought about looking up myself. Great tip for using pv command for seeing copy progress.

Example:

$ cat source/file.img | pv -s 100g -p -e -r > destination/file.img
[ 25MB/s] [==========> ] 13% ETA 0:54:35

Only problem: what package in CentOS includes pv?
