       bittorrent-multi-downloader — download multiple files using a scatter-gather network


       btlaunchmany [options ...]  directory

       btlaunchmanycurses [options ...]  directory


       This manual page documents briefly the bittorrent-multi-downloader command.

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

       btlaunchmany and btlaunchmanycurses are programs  that  ease  the  use  of  bittorrent  in
       multiple-downloader  situations.   The  programs  check the provided directory for torrent
       files. When they find any, they start a separate downloader thread for each torrent  file.
       These programs share a common set of options, shown below.  For more information on how to
       run them, and any program-specific options, see their individual man pages.


       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options  starting  with
       two dashes (`--').

       In  addition to the options shown below, these programs share the same common options with
       the normal downloaders, which are documented in bittorrent-downloader(1).

       --parse_dir_interval seconds
                 the number of seconds between re-scanning the provided  directory  (defaults  to

       --saveas_style 1|2|3
                 how  to  name torrent downloads (1 = rename to torrent name, 2 = save under name
                 in torrent, 3 = save in  directory  under  torrent  name)  (defaults  to  1  for
                 btlaunchmany, 2 for btlaunchmanycurses)

       --display_path 0|1
                 whether  to  display  the  full  path  or  the torrent contents for each torrent
                 (defaults to 1 for btlaunchmany, 0 for btlaunchmanycurses)


       bittorrent-downloader(1), btlaunchmany(1), btlaunchmanycurses(1).
