       This manual page documents briefly the btdownloadgui command.

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

       btdownloadgui is a GUI interface to download torrents.

       btdownloadgui will open a provided torrent URL or file and download it until complete.  It
       will then seed (upload) the torrent until it is stopped.


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

       In addition to the program-specific options described below, this program  uses  the  same
       common  options  as  the other bittorrent downloaders, which are documented in bittorrent-

       --gui_stretchwindow 0|1
                 whether to stretch the download status window to fit the torrent name  (defaults
                 to 0)

       --gui_displaystats 0|1
                 whether to display statistics on peers and seeds (defaults to 1)
