       Flush - GTK-based BitTorrent client


       flush [OPTIONS] [TORRENT_FILE]...


       Flush  is  a  GTK-based  BitTorrent  client.  You  can  use  it to download files from the
       BitTorrent network.

       You can control already running instance, for example, by following commands:
              flush -o --download-rate-limit=100
              flush --start=all


       * Controlling running instance by command line interface, such as:
         * Starting/stopping torrents.
         * Changing download/upload rate limit.
         * Changing maximum connections limit.
       * Running many instances with different configs from the same user.
       * Automatic copying finished downloads to specified directory.
       * Setting custom download path for each file of the torrent.
       * Ability to choose torrent file's character set encoding.
       * Automatic torrents loading from specified directory.
       * Automatic pausing and removing old torrents.
       * Temporary pausing and resuming torrents.
       * Overall and current session statistics.
       * Creating your own torrent files.
       * IP filter.

       -o, --only-pass
              Only pass commands to already running Flush instance. Does not start  new  instance
              if it is not running yet.


              Default configuration directory.


       On  startup  Flush  finds  already running instances via DBus session bus. Therefore it is
       necessary to run Flush in a single session bus (usual in X session bus) to prevent running
       several instances with one configuration path.

       Please  notice  that  when  you  are  running  Flush from console or by cron, when DISPLAY
       environment variable is not available, Flush finds already running  GUI  instance  without
       problems  via  ${config_path}/dbus_session link, which all GUI instances are creating when
       they have owned DBus name. This makes it possible to control running Flush  GUI  instances
       from cron.
