ed2k - aMule eD2k link parser

ed2k [-c <path>] [-t <num>] [-e] [-l] <eD2k-link>

ed2k [-h]

ed2k [-v]

Sends the given <eD2k-link> to aMule, i.e. writes it to the file ~/.aMule/ED2KLinks, which will be checked by aMule every second for links.
[ -c <path>, --config-dir=<path> ]
Read config from <path> instead of home
[ -t, --category=<num> ]
Set category for passed eD2k links to <num>
[ -e, --emulecollection ]
Loads all link found in the emulecollection given as <ed2k-link>
[ -l, --list ]
Lists all link found in the emulecollection given as <ed2k-link>
[ -h, --help ]
Prints a short usage description.
[ -v, --version ]
Displays the current version number.
[ eD2k-link ]
Adds an eD2k-link to the core.

The eD2k link to be added can be:

  • a file link (ed2k://|file|...), it will be added to the download queue;
  • a server link (ed2k://|server|...), it will be added to the server list;
  • a serverlist link, in which case all servers in the list will be added to the server list;
  • a magnet link;
  • an emulecollection file.

The order in which you give the parameters is important. You can give more than one link, and every link can have it's own params. For example ed2k <link1> -t2 <link2> will download <link1> in standard category and <link2> in category 2.
