       btmaketorrentgui  — GUI program to generate torrent meta-info files for
       use with bittorrent




       This manual page documents briefly the btmaketorrentgui command.

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

       btmaketorrentgui is a GUI interface to btmakemetafile, it generates the
       torrent info files that are distributed to bittorrent clients  (usually
       over  http)  to  inform  them  of  where the designated tracker for the
       torrent is located, and to enable them to verify the file’s contents.

       btmaketorrentgui does not require arguments like  btmakemetafile  does,
       instead  everything  is done in the GUI interface. The first box in the
       GUI is the file or  directory  that  the  torrent  info  file  will  be
       generated for, the second is the "announce" address of the tracker (ex.
       http://my.tracker:6969/announce). The third box is for an optional list
       of  announces,  separated by commas or whitespace and on several lines.
       You can also optionally set the piece size and a comment.


       btcompletedir(1),        btcompletedirgui(1),        btmakemetafile(1),
       btshowmetainfo(1), bittorrent-downloader(1).
