Perfect Progressive Tense

Two perfect progressive tenses (future and past) describe "on-going" actions that have come to an end.  The present perfect progressive tense, on the other hand, describes an action that started in the past and continues into the future.

Examples:

The past perfect progressive tense: I had been going
The present prefect progressive tense: I have been going
The future perfect progressive tense: I will have been going

They are said to be in the perfect progressive aspect.
