Net::BitTorrent::Todo - TODO list for Perl module Net::BitTorrent

High priorities

  • Flesh out the test suite and example scripts

    Create a series of bad .torrent files to test N::B::Torrent with:

    • invalid pieces string

      • string length does not % 40 evenly

      • string is shorter than 40 chars

      • (piece_length * num_pieces) != total_size_of_torrent

    • intermediate .piece file to store incoming blocks

    • Document DHT stuff in N::B::Protocol

    • Remove /scripts/bittorrent.pl from the distribution

      It's a crutch and now, with the demonstration scripts, it's no longer needed.

Short term goals

  • DHT callbacks (?)

  • BEP 9: Extension for Peers to Send Metadata Files

Long term goals

  • Per-torrent transfer limits. (?)

  • improve file handling

    • large files (> 4G) typically require 64bit math

  • scripts/wx-gui-client.pl (perhaps)

  • Proxy support

Duke Nukem: Forever

  • PoCo::BitTorrent

  • uTP depending on how well it works out if/when it hits IETF

  • ut_pex ...despite it being undocumented
