Re: Help: progress bar to slow
I don't absolutely need the 'wait.
I included it for the same reason Graham does: so that future modifications of the code
would allow me to stop the encryption process mid stream, since it can sometimes take
a very long time with large files.
I did remove it from my script but it didn't improve the time by much.
I believe the time is being added with the 'show, because when I reduce the number of
times show is called, the script speeds up.
It still is about 2 times longer with the progress bar active than without it.
I will try Volkers suggestion today.
It seems like a good way to restrict the number of 'show calls no matter what the size
of the file is.
