TPUT(1)                                                   TPUT(1)

     NAME
          tput - measure read throughput

     SYNOPSIS
          tput [ -b buflen ] [ -p ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Tput continuously reads standard input writing throughput
          statistics to standard error. The throughput value is calcu-
          lated and written once per second and automatically scaled
          to kilo-, mega- or gigabytes.

          When the -p flag is specified, tput will write the data read
          to standard output (the default is to discard the data).

          A read blocksize (default is 8192) in bytes can be given
          with the -b buflen option.

     EXAMPLE
          tput </dev/zero
