filter or rate-limit text lines containing CR

crswallow processes text lines passed in from stdin and forwards most of them to stdout/stderr. Text lines which contain the carriage return character (cr) are often used by software to print progress information on a text console. Some tools update the status very often, e.g. mencoder may do so several hundred times per second. Such output can be very disturbing when running software over a remote terminal connection with low bandwidth. The crswallow filter can limit status output to a single update in a given time interval, for example once per second.

To install crswallow, paste this in macOS terminal after installing MacPorts

sudo port install crswallow
