BTRENAME(1) General Commands Manual BTRENAME(1)


btrename - change the suggested filename inside a bittorrent file


bttrack torrent newfilename


This manual page documents briefly the btrename command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

btrename is a program which will change the suggested filename presented to the user for a bittorrent file. This will make the downloader save it as a different name by default. The torrent specified by the torrent option is modified in-place, changing the suggested filename to newfilename.


bittorrent-downloader(1), btmakemetafile(1), btreannounce(1).


This manual page was written by Michael Janssen <>, for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
