You get the two Bencode-related functions:
bedecode. For more on Bencoding, see the BitTorrent Protocol documentation.
These are tracker response-related functions.
bencode ( ARGS )
Expects a single value (basic scalar, array reference, or hash reference) and returns a single string.
Bencoding is the BitTorrent protocol's basic serialization and data organization format. The specification supports integers, lists (arrays), dictionaries (hashes), and byte strings.
bdecode ( STRING )
Expects a bencoded string. The return value depends on the type of data contained in the string.
compact ( LIST )
Compacts a list of IPv4:port strings into a single string.
A compact peer is 6 bytes; the first four bytes are the host (in network byte order), the last two bytes are the port (again in network byte order).
uncompact ( STRING )
Inflates a compacted string of peers and returns a list of IPv4:port strings.
