btmakemetafile file tracker_announce_address [ option ... ]
This manual page documents briefly the btmakemetafile command. This
manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the
original program does not have a manual page.
btmakemetafile is a program that generates the torrent info files which
are distributed to bittorrent clients (usually via the WWW) in order to
inform them where the designated tracker for the torrent is located,
and to allow them to verify the file’s contents.
btmakemetafile takes two arguments. Both are required. The first is
the file that the torrent info file will be generated for. The second
is the "announce" address of a tracker (ex.
which power of 2 to set the piece size to (default: 18)
bittorrent-downloader(1), btrename(1), btreannounce(1), bttrack(1).
This manual page was written by Michael Janssen <firstname.lastname@example.org>,
for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
