Project Summary

Net::BitTorrent brings BitTorrent to Perl. Bet::BitTorrent is available via CPAN.

Features include...Proven portability. Written in pure Perl. No compiler needed. Well documented API and a clean, class-based design. Doesn't depend on any 'extra' modules. If you have perl 5.10, you're set. International support; Unicode filenames are properly handled even on Win32. Support for many major extensions to the base protocol including the Fast (Peers) Extension and Mainline DHT. Getting Started...Getting a full client up and running with Net::BitTorrent is easy. Simply... Pick an installation method: CPAN shell: cpan Net::BitTorrent PPM shell: ppm install Net::BitTorrent (Note: I suggest using ActiveState's beta repositories.) Manually (from a Subversion checkout or extracted .tar.gz): perl ./Build.PL && ./Build && ./Build test && ./Build install Type "perldoc Net::BitTorrent" at the command line for documentation and a very simple working client.

For more complete sample clients, see client.pl and web-gui.pl; these two files are also bundled with the Net::BitTorrent distribution but are not installed. For more geeky stuff, see my other repository here on GoogleCode... There, you'll find (among other things) perl4mIRC.
