NAME
       bttrack — bittorrent tracker

SYNOPSIS
       bttrack [options ...]  --dfile file

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the bttrack command.

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

       bttrack is a "tracker" for bittorrent clients. This program keeps track
       of the completion of each client, and communicates that information
       when requested to other clients.

       There is one required option, --dfile, which specifies what file to
       store the recent downloader information.

OPTIONS

       options starting with two dashes (`--').  A summary of options is
