As the author I'll tell you that it is most definitely _not_ a disk utility. The
--file option comes in handy for reading the size of a file, so you don't have
to use the --size option (size) after ls'ing it.. A typical use of pipemeter is

pipemeter -f file.tar.gz | tar zxvf - path/to/some/file

I use this a lot to restore stuff from big (25GB) tar files. :-D
