checking uucp percentage sent when sending a file

On AIX or UNIX is there a way to see the percentage sent or any way of telling how much time is left when SENDING a file using uucp.  I have found a way to find how much is left when RECEIVING a file using uucp but not SENDING a file.  I just hate waiting there not knowing how much time or size of the file sent so far using uucp.  Frustrating!  Anybody out there know how to do this?

No, there's no way to do this in UUCP.  UUCP was designed for non-interactive background transfers, so you shouldn't care how long it's taking or when it will be done.  Meanwhile, why are you using UUCP?  Nobody uses UUCP anymore...
