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
the number of seconds between re-scanning the provided
directory (defaults to 60)
how to name torrent downloads (1 = rename to torrent name, 2
= save under name in torrent, 3 = save in directory under
torrent name) (defaults to 1 for btlaunchmany, 2 for
whether to display the full path or the torrent contents for
each torrent (defaults to 1 for btlaunchmany, 0 for
bittorrent-downloader(1), btlaunchmany(1), btlaunchmanycurses(1).
