Hello, I've found rtorrent and I think it is a great software. However, I
have some suggestions I think will make it better.
First, and most important, please use some web-based bug-tracking system
(like sourceforge or bugzilla). Requiring *any* user to subscribe this
list JUST to contact rtorrent developers is not a nice thing.
Well, I'm a bit used to "cplay"  program and its simple but intuitive
interface. I really would like that rtorrent had an interface as simple to
use as it. Ok, this suggestion is a bit subjective, but there are some
things that could be improved:
- Home/End/PageUp/PageDown SHOULD work. When you have a torrent with
hundreds of files (like these ), you will understand why I ask this.
- A simple search would be very welcome too. (cplay has search too, very
handy and simple to use)
- In general, a more intuitive interface, with built-in help. For example,
we can use cplay without reading a manpage, because the built-in help is
enough. The same could apply to rtorrent, with help screens explaining
what we can do on each screen, and how.
<cplay comparison stops here>
I have one more suggestion. When I want to download just a few files from
a torrent, I don't want ALL files created on disk. Get one of the torrents
listed at  and try to download just one or a few musics.
I don't know how difficult it could be, but maybe rtorrent could keep a
"temp" directory with all files and data rtorrent needs, but the user does
not want have/see. Then, only "selected" files would go to final
directory. This would avoid (or hide) hundreds of empty files and a few
incomplete that were created when I tried to download just some of the
music from .
Thank you for your time. I hope you like my suggestions. I first posted
them at .
Please reply to me; I entered this list just to send this message, I'm
