xrate is a simple program written in C which calculates the realtime transfer rates of a running pipe. This might be useful for checking if your system is fast enough to record a CD on-the-fly.
Release Notes: This release fixes an overflow with the bytecount variable nsize which now consists of two unsigned long variables (2*32bit) and a wrong calculation and output for very short runs (no alarm was called). It also adds time output during runtime analysis.
Release Notes: Support for older versions of Linux/libc, and ANSI-C compliance.
Release Notes: Initial freshmeat announcement; new output of current transfer rate every second and an xrate summary with minimum and maximum xrate.
