The command "progress -q" is not specific enough to provide a precise explanation as it could refer to various programs or utilities with their own specific functionalities. However, in general, the "-q" flag is commonly used in command-line commands to indicate a "quiet" or "silent" mode.

In this context, it implies that the "progress" command, when executed with the "-q" flag, will run without displaying any unnecessary or verbose output. It usually suppresses informational messages and only shows essential information or error messages if any occur.

Without further information about the specific application or context in which the "progress" command is used, it is difficult to provide a more specific explanation.

This explanation was created by an AI. In most cases those are correct. But please always be careful and never run a command you are not sure if it is safe.
