# status in development. don't expect things to work yet. fwiw, it *does* appear to work though at the moment, at least at a basic level... I tested a torrent download as confirmation that the udp tracker support is working and it completed with no issues. -sandbender # intro this package contains a bittorrent peer (for downloading and uploading files), tools for verifying torrents & printing information about torrents, a bittorrent tracker for use with a http server, and a program for creating torrent files. # install this package depends on "http", "web" and "util". to install, bind/symlink/include a mkconfig (e.g. from your inferno install), and: mk install when building from within inferno, insert SYSHOST=Inferno and ROOT= in the mk invocations to override the values in the mkconfig. # latest the latest version can be found at http://www.ueber.net/code/r/torrent # licence & author all files are in the public domain. this code has been written by mechiel lukkien, reachable at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. udp tracker support added by Rudy X. Desjardins, reachable at rudy at sandbenders dot ca. # todo ## wm/torrent: - is there a race in reading Qpeers? e.g. that an old read is happening after a seek 0 for restarting? e.g. due to a slow kill? i've seen an error about a bad line from Qpeers... - available bar is not smoothly/correctly filled. probably best to only show non-seeders in it. availbar seems to pieces with overlap, on the edges of the piece. figure out how to fill the panel with the bars (and thus bars themselves) in x direction. catch resizes and recreate the bars with new width. - make torrent/peer send events on removal of bad peers? and remove them from our list. or at least reserve the peerevent message for it. clear stale entries from badpeers list. - could show dns names instead of/along ip addresses. ## torrent/peer - once all mechanisms are implemented and features settle down, make all the accounting less cpu intensive. torrent/peer takes lots of cpu now. - allow downloading of a subset of files, perhaps with priority - implement rarest-first scheme? - handle multiple torrent files at once? allows for better use of bandwidth - support magnet uri's? (bep 9) - http seeding (bep 17 and/or bep 19) ## torrent/track - make search for a peer (given ip & port) less inefficient. - might add scraping. - might be a bit smarter about which peers to send to a peer. e.g. not itself, make randomizing cheaper, let peers that are done (left=0) not connect to each other.
