Hi, I used jhalfs the other day and it worked flawlessly :-). I thought
at the time however, it would be useful to have some means of knowing
when it is actually doing something... i.e. when it was building the gcc
bootstrap (If I recall correctly) there is a long period where you stare
at a blank screen... Looking at the disk activity light helps but it
isn't quite the same as seeing pages of compiler warning messages
I don't know if this is even possible in a terminal window - maybe with
some clever escape sequences or something?
Just the meanderings of a lost sole - please ignore if this is stupid.
