#livetools: Live-updating Command Line Tools

Build Status

This repo provides live-updating versions of the wc and date binaries, designed for interactive use, called lwc and ldate.

The tools perform the same tasks as their standard *nix counterparts, but provide periodic updates on the terminal.


Count bytes/words/lines in standard input.


$ lwc [options]


-c, --bytes         Print count of bytes
-l, --lines         Print count of lines
-w, --words         Print count of words
-h, --help          Show usage


Display current date and time.


$ ldate

This will display the current time updated once a second. Currently, the ldate does not support any command line flags.
