BTCOMPLETEDIR(1)            General Commands Manual           BTCOMPLETEDIR(1)



NAME
       btcompletedir - makes a .torrent file for every specified file

SYNOPSIS
       btcompletedir tracker_announce_address file [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the btcompletedir command.  This
       manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       btcompletedir is a program that generates the torrent info files which
       are distributed to bittorrent clients (usually via the WWW) in order to
       inform them where the designated tracker for the torrent is located,
       and to allow them to verify the file's contents.

       btcompletedir requires at least two arguments.  The first is the
       "announce" address of a tracker (ex. http://127.0.0.1:6969/announce).
       Every subsequent argument is a file that the torrent info file will be
       generated for.
