Name

bencode, lua-bencode or whatever name you call it.

License

The bencode module may be copied under the same terms as Lua. Please see COPYING for more information.

Installation

There are three possible ways install it:

  • your distribution has a package for it (unlikely, unless they like lua)
  • use luarocks to install it.
  • copy bencode.lua to some place in package.path by hand

What's it all about?

This is a module for the lua programming language for decoding and encoding bencoded data which can be used to read and write torrent files for bittorrent. More information on bencoding can be found here.

Authors

  • Kristofer Karlsson, who wrote the decoder, islist and isdictionary
  • Moritz Wilhelmy, who wrote the rest and glued everything together
