       This manual page documents briefly the bittorrent-multi-downloader

       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

       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

       --parse_dir_interval seconds
                 the number of seconds between re-scanning the provided
                 directory (defaults to 60)

       --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

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

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