Z, can you add one more option like 'silence' so that it won't output
anything to the console?
BTW, how to you read "PIECES"? I saw something like 'PIECES :

Ok, here's the console applet.

To use it, you just say:

java -jar console.jar hash=<hash> [path=<path>] [mb=<mb>] [source]

"hash" is the only requred field. It's the 40-byte sha-1.

If "path" is not set, it just writes it to the current folder. It will
not create folders, so if you're going to want it to be put in a folder,
make sure it already exists. "mb" is the number of MB you want it to
download. (Since it deals in multiples of 10MB at this point, every
value will be rounded up to the nearest 10MB.)

If "source" is set, then the app will not close when it is done, but
will instead continue running as a source. If it is not set, then it
will close when it is done.

You can't combine a MB limit with "source", though, because you're not
really a source if you limi the mb downloaded.

Any problems or questions, just let me know.

I'll CVS the source, as well.

Oh, and just and FYI, when you see a bunch of numbers go by in
parenthesis, that is just a connection attempt. The number is the "rank"
of the source. All sources start out with a rank of 0, and increase or
decrease based on if they are connectable, are busy, etc.
