Bittorent through terminal
 
Hello,

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?

thanks

yes, there is :}


Cheers,
Tink

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

OP: I suggest you read these three articles:
http://homepages.tesco.net/~J.deBoyn...o-answers.html
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html
http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

`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.
