benc Publisher's description
from Przemyslaw Pawelczyk
bencoded files handler
benc is an utility for working with bencoded files. It translates a given file between bencoded and text modes. The text file it produces is far more human-alterable than the bencoded version.
Any occurence of apostrophe (') and backslash () in string from bencoded file
is preceded by backslash () in text file. String from text file starts with
apostrophe (') and ends with apostrophe (').
In text file every opening apostrophe must have closing apostrophe.
'abc''def' - incorrect, lack of preceding backslashes
'ef'gh' - correct, length = 6
'efa' - incorrect, backslash precedes incorrect character

В· Reformatted code
В· Changed ChangeLog to Debian-like format
