SYNOPSIS
       pipebench [ -ehqQIoru ] [ -s file | -S file ] [ -b bufsize ]

DESCRIPTION
       Measures	the speed of stdin/stdout communication.

OPTIONS
       -h     Displays a help message and exits.

       -e     If  an  error  occurs, exit (breaking the	pipe between stdin and

       -b bufsize

       -r     Just show	raw speed, no fancy stuff. And no summary.

       -s file

       -S file
	      Write status to file instead of stderr.

       -I     Use 1kB =	1000B, instead of the default 1024B.

       -u     Don't convet to units (kilo, Mega, etc...)

EXAMPLES
       Benchmark and show progress of backup
       # (cd /home/; tar cf - .) | pipebench | (cd /mnt/backup/; tar xf	-)

       A number	to brag	to your	friends	about
       $ dd if=/dev/zero bs=80k	count=60k 2>  /dev/null	 |  ./pipebench	 -q  >
       /dev/null
