NAME ^

001-torrent-info.pl - Demonstration of using a standalone Net::BitTorrent::Torrent object to gather information

Description ^

This is a demonstration of how standalone Net::BitTorrent::Torrent objects can be created and used to gather information from a .torrent file.

Synopsis ^

 001-torrent-info.pl

Lowdown ^

This section only makes sense when you view the source.

Line 6

Returns a new Net::BitTorrent::Torrent object. Created this way, (without a 'Client' parameter) the new object is not loaded into a parent Net::BitTorrent client.

You may use any of the arguments listed in Net::BitTorrent::Torrent's constructor. If there's a problem loading the .torrent, an error will (probably) be Carped by Net::BitTorrent::Torrent.

Line 8

Calls the debugging method as_string just to give you a rundown of what can be parsed from the file.

Line 9

Prints a dump of the .torrent file's metadata.

Line 10

Prints a list of the .torrent's files. This line also uses the path method from Net::BitTorrent::Torrent::File.

See Also ^

Please see Net::BitTorrent::Torrent's documentation for a list of methods and accessors.
