[Circle] DOUBT (QUESTION): Meters in prompts

Hiya guys, just two quick questions about those bars.

Has anyone thought of implementing such in a prompt? so you could have 
something like

<####->H <#---->M <#####>V >>

As you may guess the scale goes 20% each slot, maybe it is not as 
accurate, but it is easier to glance at it... and it gives a more natural 
(fuzzy) feeling (in RL you usually feel tired, you do not feel that you 
could walk exactly 45.43 meters more)

Also, another idea, and this is more like a quest for programmers or a 
challenge..:) How would be the easiest (shortest) way to make vertical 
bars. And obivously I imply that the bars are sharing the lines with 
other bars/items. Would you have to code each character on the scale and 
light them individually (separate from the rest)?

Just questions, I am not planning on implemented this exactly, but I am a 
curious person..:)
