    linux torrent client


    hi all
    so far i used bittornado (CLI btdownloadcurses...) and it worked like a charm
    but recently i had a need for a feature most gui torrent-clients i know have. It's a rather simple feature, downloading on a temporary location and transfering downloaded stuff to some final destination upon finishing the transfer. I hope someone can give me a hint what CLI client can perform such a task ?
    i hear rtorrent is a potential candidate ?
    i would be thankful if someone could give an advice
    thx in advanced

    I use azureus for my GUI torrent client. I'm not sure if it has the exact feature you want, but you could give it a try.

    something ncurses based would be really appreciated

    It doesn't look like rtorrent can do that, you might think about writing a shell script:
