So i need a command like


That output somethings like:

file1.torrent     1111MB
file2.torrent     222MB
file3.torrent     3333MB
file4.torrent     444MB

Okay. Second go. :)

TorrentInfo python script (usually you have python installed on a linux distro):
torrentinfo *.torrent | grep size

Or just: torrentinfo *.torrent (as the page shows)
