progressbar: gcp uses ProgressBar, a class coded by Nilton Volpato that allows the textual representation of progression.
GLib: This heavily used library is used here for the main loop, event catching, and for DBus. Get it at https://developer.gnome.org/glib/.
DBus: This excellent IPC is ut the heart of gcp. Get more information at https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/dbus/.
Python and its amazing standard library: gcp was coded quickly for my own needs thanks to this excellent and efficient language and its really huge standard library. Python can be download at https://www.python.org/.
If I forgot any credit, please contact me (email below) to fix that.
Big thanks to contributors and package maintainers.
