ncurses BitTorrent client based on LibTorrent from rakshasa

rtorrent is a BitTorrent client based on LibTorrent. It uses ncurses and aims to be a lean, yet powerful BitTorrent client, with features similar to the most complex graphical clients.

Since it is a terminal application, it can be used with the "screen"/"dtach" utility so that the user can conveniently logout from the system while keeping the file transfers active.

Some of the features of rtorrent include:

 * Use an URL or file path to add torrents at runtime
 * Stop/delete/resume torrents
 * Optionally loads/saves/deletes torrents automatically in a session
 * Safe fast resume support
 * Detailed information about peers and the torrent
 * Support for distributed hash tables (DHT)
 * Support for peer-exchange (PEX)
 * Support for initial seeding (Superseeding)
