Is there a command-line tool to measure how fast a text file is growing, in units of lines/second?
For small-ish files, I can do something with
wc -l, but that measures the file anew each time. Usually I want to watch either a huge log file, or a pipeline.
If there was a tool that just read stdin, and every second it spat out how many newlines it had read during the past second, that'd be perfect.
It's probably pretty easy to throw something together in one of my HLLs of choice, but if there's an existing tool that does this, all the better.
