btlaunchmany(1) launch multiple torrent downloads, using a text interface


btlaunchmany [options ...] directory


This manual page documents briefly the btlaunchmany command.

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

btlaunchmany is a program that eases the use of managing multiple torrent downloads. The program checks the provided directory for torrent files. When it finds any, it starts a separate downloader thread for each torrent file.

Unlike btlaunchmanycurses, this program does not require a terminal to stay alive.


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

This program also uses some options specific to multiple-torrent downloaders, which are documented in bittorrent-multi-downloader(1).
