NAME

       btmaketorrentgui — GUI program to generate torrent meta-info files for use with bittorrent

SYNOPSIS

       btmaketorrentgui

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the btmaketorrentgui command.

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

       btmaketorrentgui is a GUI interface to btmakemetafile, it generates the torrent info files
       that are distributed to bittorrent clients (usually over http) to inform them of where the
       designated tracker for the torrent is located, and to enable them  to  verify  the  file's
       contents.

       btmaketorrentgui  does  not require arguments like btmakemetafile does, instead everything
       is done in the GUI interface. The first box in the GUI is the file or directory  that  the
       torrent  info  file  will  be  generated  for, the second is the "announce" address of the
       tracker (ex. http://my.tracker:6969/announce). The third box is for an  optional  list  of
       announces, separated by commas or whitespace and on several lines. You can also optionally
       set the piece size and a comment.
