BitTorrent Client written in C++

This application is written in the C++ language and doesn't require any graphical component, such as an X server. Original ctorrent's upstream has stopped its development and now it's kept updated with new releases/bug fixes by a new developer. It's built as a console program and it can be even used remotely in a machine that provides outside ssh access. Other main features are:

 * Support for large files (>2GB) and large torrents (>255 files).
 * Strategic selection of pieces to request for download.
 * Continuous queueing of download requests, tuned based on
   latency and throughput for each peer.
 * Improved download performance, including parallel requests
   in initial and endgame modes.
 * Improved bandwidth regulation.
 * Improved compatibility with other peers.
 * Performance optimization and bug fixes.
 * An interface for monitoring and managing multiple clients.
 * Dynamic cache allocation and management, including prefetch.
