#2882 closed Bug (fixed)

transmission-remote's man-page not honest about -t option

Reported by: geirha Owned by: charles
Priority: Lowest Milestone: 1.90
Component: Daemon Version: 1.83
Severity: Normal Keywords:


transmission-remote's man-page currently states that you can select more than one torrent by providing a comma-separated list of torrent-hashes. This doesn't work as described. transmission-remote -t hash1,hash2 will just send "ids":"hash1,hash2" instead of "ids":["hash1","hash2"].

I've tried looking at the source to see how that parsing is handled, and it appears it currently has no functions to parse string of hashes into a list of strings, only string of ids into list of ints.

Either that functionality should be added, or the man-page should be changed. I'm attaching a small patch for the man-page. It also fixes one of the examples which I happened to spot while editing it.
