       This manual  page  documents  briefly  the  bittorrent-multi-downloader

       This  manual  page  was written for the Debian distribution because the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       btlaunchmany and btlaunchmanycurses are programs that ease the  use  of
       bittorrent  in  multiple-downloader situations.  The programs check the
       provided directory for torrent files. When they find any, they start  a
       separate  downloader thread for each torrent file. These programs share
       a common set of options, shown below.  For more information on  how  to
       run  them,  and  any program-specific options, see their individual man


       These programs follow the usual GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options starting with two dashes (‘--’).

       In  addition  to the options shown below, these programs share the same
       common options with the normal downloaders,  which  are  documented  in

       --parse_dir_interval seconds
                 the  number  of  seconds  between  re-scanning  the  provided
                 directory (defaults to 60)

                 torrent  name)  (defaults  to  1  for  btlaunchmany,  2   for

       --display_path 0|1
