buildtorrent - a torrent file creation program.


buildtorrent [OPTIONS] -a announceurl input output
buildtorrent [OPTIONS] -a announceurl -f filelist -n name output


buildtorrent is a torrent file creation program. Given an announce url and an input file
or directory, buildtorrent generates an output .torrent file that can be used by torrent


-a announce, --announce=url
Announce URL (required).

-f filelist, --filelist=filelist
A text file (or - for standard input) containing a list of files to add to the
output torrent file, together with the path to use inside the torrent. One file is
given per line, use / as path separator for the torrent path, use | to separate the
filesystem path from the torrent path. Backslash \ can be used to escape newlines
and | characters inside names. For example:


Using this option requires that the --name option be used.

-n name, --name=name
Specify the name for the torrent. Usage of this option is required when the
--filelist option is used, in which case it specifies the name of the torrent
directory. Usage without a file list overrides the name of the directory or file
given on the command line.

Additional announce URL list. Use , to separate outer level lists, and | to
separate inner level items; for example:


-w webseeds, --webseeds=webseeds
Additional WebSeed URL list. Use , to separate items; for example:


-l length, --piecelength=length

-p private, --private=private
