Hello, thank you for your answer. I tested clpbar with this command:
csup /root/csup/doc-supfile | bar -s 100m -nan
but there is a problem and in console, i have  this:
27.0B at 27.0B/s eta: +99:99:99 0% [=      ]
27.0B at 27.0B/s eta: +99:99:99 0% [=      ]
27.0B at 27.0B/s eta: +99:99:99 0% [=      ]
27.0B at 27.0B/s eta: +99:99:99 0% [=      ]
perhaps, i can't use this program with csup ?

Thank you :)
