Utility to create BitTorrent metainfo files
mktorrent is a simple command-line utility to create BitTorrent metainfo files, often known simply as torrents, from both single files and whole directories. It can add multiple trackers and web seed URLs, and set the
private flag to disallow advertisement through the distributed hash table (DHT) and Peer Exchange. Hashing is multi-threaded and will take advantage of multiple processor cores where possible.
