# The Progress Phallus

My friend Ray runs numerical simulations and wanted to have a decent progress bar for his code. A bit of web searching revealed some code, that takes care of this automatically. However, we thought that an ordinary progress bar is simply too conventional. We should gay it up with some ascii art into a beautiful progress phallus!

```#include <unistd.h> #include <iostream> #include <string>   void printProgBar(int percent) { std::string bar;   for (int i = 0; i < 50; i++) { if (i < (percent/2)) { bar.replace(i, 1, "="); } else if (i == (percent/2)) { bar.replace(i, 1, "D"); } else { bar.replace(i, 1, " "); } }   if (percent < 100) { std::cout << "\r" "8" << bar << "@ "; std::cout.width( 3 ); std::cout << percent << "% " << std::flush; } else { std::cout << "\r" "8" << bar; std::cout << "D~~~~ ~~~ ~" << std::flush; } }   int main() { for (int i=0; i<=95; i+=10) { sleep(1); printProgBar(i); std::cout << std::endl; } for (int i=95; i<=100; ++i) { sleep(1); printProgBar(i); std::cout << std::endl; } std::cout << std::endl; }```
```8D                                                 @   0%
