Bittorent through terminal

Is there a way to run torrents from the terminal? i really dislike the new version of bt and remember seeing that there was a way to run torrents through the terminal, mainly so u can download multiple files at once instead of waiting for one to finish?

I've never used a graphical one in my life ... so
yes, there is :}

Hi again, Tinkster--and stop harassing the newbies :p


OP: I suggest you read these three articles:

`Smart questions' also has links to the first two.

And since I've already spent my time here, I might as well say btdownloadcurses. Make of it what you can.

The Forum search is a great tool.
"Opening bittorrent files"

So is Google.
"Command line BitTorrent client"
