use with bittorrent
This manual page documents briefly the btmaketorrentgui
This manual page was written for the Debian
distribution because the
original program does not have a manual page.
is a GUI interface to btmakemetafile
generates the torrent info files that are distributed to bittorrent clients
(usually over http) to inform them of where the designated tracker for the
torrent is located, and to enable them to verify the file's contents.
does not require arguments like btmakemetafile
does, instead everything is done in the GUI interface. The first box in the
GUI is the file or directory that the torrent info file will be generated for,
the second is the "announce" address of the tracker (ex.
http://my.tracker:6969/announce). The third box is for an optional list of
announces, separated by commas or whitespace and on several lines. You can
also optionally set the piece size and a comment.
