NAME

       bti-shrink-urls - convert URLs to a shorter form using a web service

SYNOPSIS

       bti [--escaped] [--help] [URL]

DESCRIPTION

       bti-shrink-urls converts URLs to a shorter form using a web service.

       Currently http://2tu.us/ (default) and http://bit.ly / http://j.mp are supported.

OPTIONS

       --escaped
           Don't escape special characters in the URL any more, they are already percent encoded.

       --help
           Print help text.

       URL
           Specify the URL to be converted. If no URL is given bti-shrink-urls waits for input on
           stdin.

       bti-shrink-urls is configured by setting some values in ~/.bti:

       shrink_host
           Possible values: 2tu.us (default), bit.ly, j.mp

       shrink_bitly_login
           API login for bit.ly, j.mp, required if shrink_host is set to bit.ly or j.mp. See
