This manual page documents briefly the btdownloadcurses command.

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

btdownloadcurses is a curses interface to download torrents.

btdownloadcurses will open a provided torrent URL or file and download it until complete. It will then seed (upload) the torrent until it is stopped.


This program uses the same common options as the other bittorrent downloaders, which are documented in bittorrent-downloader(1).
