I think you'd do yourself a lot of good by reading the BitTorrent guide on Slyck.

Most torrent clients now have a feature that enables the user to select which files to download within a torrent. I can't think of another reason someone would want to edit torrents when you can just not get what you don't want.

i am understanding that this person thinks the files are actually inside the .torrent file itself and he is
wondering how to get them out which is how im seing it.

anyway like icecube said he would be better of reading up on how exactly it works first.

Okay no. I'm trying to edit the file list because I'm wanting to make a command line program to download torrents through Azureus where I don't necessarily want to download all of the files. And there is no command line option for Azureus that lets me select the files for download. So I'm wanting to edit the torrent instead to get rid of the files I don't want to download. Does this make sense?

No this doesn't make any sense.

If you remove files from a torrent you would also change its hash value.
It would be a different torrent with different seeds/leecher.

If Azureus doesn't support command line options for changing the download priority of files inside a torrent, maybe a feature request in the Azureus developers forum would be a valid next step.

I doubt those priorities are stored inside a torrent file.

The specification of torrent files might help you.

Perhaps it's the extreme lack of clarity in your request...

He wants to filter files from torrents... stuff like .nfo or .txt files would be my guess.

But he wants it automated.

There IS actually a solution to the problem. For command-line Azureus:

You can set file priorities using the hack command:

First list the files using (say the torrent number is #3):

show 3

Then say we want to set the priority of the 5th file listed:

hack 3 file 5 +

Where + stands for "high", but we can also have n for "normal" and - for "stop"

Just to clarify, the - option is to STOP a file being downloaded, rather than low priority.

You can choose wich file´s you want downloaded in a torrent with azureus, you don´t have to download all the files in a torrent.

I could have sword Azureus had an option to select what files inside a torrent you want to download... Why not just use that? Whats the point in using command line when theres an easier way?
