This manual page documents briefly the btrename command.

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

btrename is a program which will change the suggested filename presented to the user for a bittorrent file download. This will make the downloader save the download as a different name by default. The torrent specified by the file.torrent option is modified in-place, changing the suggested filename in it's meta-info to newfilename.
