SYNOPSIS

yencode [-d, --debug] [-e, --extension=ext] [-f, --force] [-l, --line=length] [-m, --multipart=size] [-o, --output=dir] [-p, --paths] [-q, --quiet] [--sfv=name] [--crc=name] [--help] [--version] FILE ...

DESCRIPTION

yencode encodes the files specified on the command line according to the yEnc Usenet encoding format.

OPTIONS

-d, --debug Write messages useful for debugging to stderr while program is operating.

-e, --extension=ext Use ext as the file extension for encoded files, instead of ync, which is the default.

-f, --force If the output file already exists, overwrite the existing file without prompting.

-l, --line=length Create encoded lines of length characters, instead of 128, which is the default.

-m, --multipart=size Create multipart output, with each file containing size bytes of data. size may be specified in bytes, or in a human-friendly format such as 200k or 2M. If -m is specified without a size, each part defaults to 620k.

-o, --output=dir Create output in dir instead of the current directory.

-p, --paths Save relative pathnames to files in the encoded data. For example, running yencode files/new/bigfile.mp3 will by default save the filename as bigfile.mp3. If the -p option is specified, the filename will be saved as files/new/bigfile.mp3.

-q, --quiet Try to avoid writing output while running. The only output that will occur is error messages.

--sfv=name Create a yencoded SFV file containing the checksum of each input file. If name is specified, then that name will be used as a prefix for the SFV file.

--crc=name Create a yencoded CRC file containing the checksum of each input file. If name is specified, then that name will be used as a prefix for the CRC file. Note that this CRC file may or may not comply with the "standard" for what a .crc file is supposed to contain.

--help Display program help and exit.

--version Output version number and exit.
