Binary package “bittorrent” in ubuntu cosmic

Original BitTorrent client - console tools

 BitTorrent is a tool for distributing files. It's extremely
 easy to use - downloads are started by clicking on hyperlinks.
 Whenever more than one person is downloading at once
 they send pieces of the file(s) to each other, thus relieving
 the central server's bandwidth burden. Even with many
 simultaneous downloads, the upload burden on the central server
 remains quite small, since each new downloader introduces new
 upload capacity.
 .
 This package contains the tools which are used for console-only
 downloading. If you want the GUI interface, install the
 bittorrent-gui package.
