|bittorrent-multi-downloader(1)||General Commands Manual||bittorrent-multi-downloader(1)|
NAME¶bittorrent-multi-downloader — download multiple files using a scatter-gather network
SYNOPSIS¶btlaunchmany [options ...] directory
btlaunchmanycurses [options ...] directory
DESCRIPTION¶This manual page documents briefly the bittorrent-multi-downloader command.
This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
btlaunchmany and btlaunchmanycurses are programs that ease the use of bittorrent in multiple-downloader situations. The programs check the provided directory for torrent files. When they find any, they start a separate downloader thread for each torrent file. These programs share a common set of options, shown below. For more information on how to run them, and any program-specific options, see their individual man pages.
OPTIONS¶These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`--').
In addition to the options shown below, these programs share the same common options with the normal downloaders, which are documented in bittorrent-downloader(1).
- --parse_dir_interval seconds
- the number of seconds between re-scanning the provided directory (defaults to 60)
- --saveas_style 1|2|3
- how to name torrent downloads (1 = rename to torrent name, 2 = save under name in torrent, 3 = save in directory under torrent name) (defaults to 1 for btlaunchmany, 2 for btlaunchmanycurses)
- --display_path 0|1
- whether to display the full path or the torrent contents for each torrent (defaults to 1 for btlaunchmany, 0 for btlaunchmanycurses)
