btreannounce — change the announce address of a torrent file


btreannounce trackerURL file [file ...] [--announce_list announceURLlist]


This manual page documents briefly the btreannounce command.

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

btreannounce is a program which will change the announce address of a existing torrent
file. The already existing torrent specified by the file argument will be modified to use
the new announce url given by the trackerURL argument.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
two dashes (`--'). A summary of options is included below.

--announce_list announceURLlist
a list of announce URLs. This is an optional list of redundant/backup tracker
URLs. The format of announceURLlist is as follows:

URL[,URL ...][|URL[,URL ...] ...]

where the URLs separated by commas are tried randomly, then the groups of URLs
separated by pipes are tried in sequential order. If this option is omitted, it
is assumed you don't want an announce_list field in the metafile. If
announce_list is given, clients which support it will ignore the trackerURL
value. (defaults to '')


These examples show how to use the --announce_list option in a few scenarios.

Try the three trackers (1-3) in sequential order:

btreannounce trackerURL file --announce_list http://track1.com|http://track2.com|http://track3.com

Try the three trackers (1-3) in a randomly selected order:

btreannounce trackerURL file --announce_list http://track1.com,http://track2.com,http://track3.com

Try the main tracker (1) first, then try the two backups (2 and 3) randomly:

btreannounce trackerURL file --announce_list http://track1.com|http://track2.com,http://track3.com
