A tool for extractin file names from *.torrent fies
 
Hi,
I need to know file names in torrent without opening torrent client. Know and extract for further actions.

Hi,

I assume you want to do this from CLI. The information can be easily extracted with ctorrent.
Code:

ctorrent -x file.torrent
You can further parse the output with sed/awk/perl to extract the info you need. I do not recommend to parse the *.torrent file directly with one of the above tools since it is "semi-binary".

Hope this helps.

Great thanks. After I posted I found that the same can do btpd with
Code:

btinfo file.torrent
