buildtorrent - a torrent file creation program.


buildtorrent [OPTIONS] -a announceurl input output

-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:
