#6085 new Enhancement

transmission-remote should not accept out of order ranges.

Severity: Normal Keywords: transmission-remote


On occasion, I have made a mistake with the CLI, which changed the state of a large number of torrents. It was my mistake, but I think it is worthwhile to make that less harmful.

If I have 1000 torrents loaded and wish to do an operation on Id 990-999, but instead mistype '-t 990-99', 99-990 will be selected, which is to say, just one of those intended along with most of the others that were not, a significant annoyance. I am reporting this only because the affect is a lot more painful than any other input error I have subjected transmission-remote to, yet have done it twice due to quick edit/typo of end of range.

I am presently unable to think of any particular use case for accepting reverse-order ranges and think it would be better to treat them as invalid.
