Re: config file for bittornado command-line options?

The easiest way is to set an alias in your ~/.bashrc (or the rc file of
your favourite shell other than bash). Something like

alias btdc="btdownloadcurses --max_upload_rate 10 --minport 10000"

should do. Re-source the rc file ('. ~/.bashrc', mind the dot) and run
'btdc http://sometorrent' to try it out.

btlaunchmany understands the option "--save_options 1" which puts config
files in this directory. But the generated config files are not taken
into account by the other clients.

After the millenium I would tell lies only to those who deserved them.
