Write a bash script that will show a working progress bar on the command-line.

The bar should fill up from empty to 100% in 5 seconds. 100% is 60 = signs.

For example it could look like this:

******************************______________________________ (50%)

The drawing of the bar should be done in at least one function. Hint: you can use the echo command with a special character to move the cursor back. Also go back to OPS435_Lecture_3_-_Bash to get a reminder about arithmetic in bash.

But you may use other characters that you think may look better.
