Command Line BitTorrent on Solaris

As some users are preferring command line utilities or simply need them for working remotely I was looking for some CLI bittorrent client for Solaris and found one which works pretty well. You can get the client from Blastwave:

http://www.blastwave.org/packages.php/bittorrent

Use "pkg-get -i bittorrent" to get CSWbittorrent package or if you have OpenSolaris binary distro there is also IPS package at http://blastwave.network.com:10000/.

Once you have it installed the usage is quite simple. I like to monitor download status so for that I'm using "--spew" parameter to display diagnostic info to stdout:

$ btdownloadcurses --spew 1 --url <url>

And here's how it looks:

CLI bittorent
