tucan(1) download and upload manager for hosting sites


tucan [OPTIONS]


Tucan is a free and open source application designed for automatic management of downloads and uploads at hosting sites like:

rapidshare.com, megaupload.com, gigasize.com, mediafire.com, 4shared.com, sendspace.com, zshare.net, filefactory.com, easy-share.com, badongo.com, depositfiles.com, hotfile.com, ...


Tucan can be used through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or through a Command Line Interface (CLI). Running Tucan without options makes it starts its GUI but with an option makes it starts its CLI.

The following options are to use Tucan through its CLI.
