torrentinfo: Torrent information, of course

I think you can probably infer what torrentinfo from its name. Here’s what it looks like in action.

As you can see, torrentinfo not only decodes the otherwise indecipherable mess in most torrent files, but breaks it down into easily readable chunks, color-coded and neatly spaced. Very nice.

I noticed that torrentinfo can handle a string of torrents, but any flags you want to use have to be listed at the front. Putting -b at the end, for example, caused torrentinfo to spit out errors.

That’s about all I can think of to say about torrentinfo. There are a few other *info tools that do similar tasks, and they’re worth investigating in the future. If not installing now and again. 😉
