Exclamation BitTorrent Client [Command Line]

Greetings everybody.
I'm searching the net for a BitTorrent Client, for linux.
But they are all for Gnome/KDE'n stuff.
Does anyone know, about a command-line-based-bittorent-client?

Thanks for reading this.

Bittornado has some included, I think the normal bittorrent also has. Search for or Btw you can use --max_upload_rate 20 to limit your upload to 20 kb (or something else).

Download the Python source and extract it. Then to run it, you just do this simple command:

./ filename.torrent
and that's it. All done on the command line, no GUI or anything.
