I'm really simply interested in some sort of progress indication that
doesn't fill up my captured output with hundreds of line feeds. Printing a
single character . or # every so often is a way to indicate things are
working. From use I know how many characters will be printed for each
project and know when it will be done.

I'm using the Jens File Editor (JFE) IDE which captures the output in
realtime so the progress indicator to a non-tty is useful to me. Although
I'm not sure it it handles

I'll have a play around and see how JFE handles the BS character. I can move
the progress indicator out to its own function so all the mods are in one
