dl Download Ticket Service

dl is a file exchange service that allows you to upload any file to a Web server and generate a unique ticket for others to download. The ticket is automatically expired according to the specified rules, so that you don't need to keep track or cleanup afterward. dl also allows you to grant an anonymous, one-time upload for others to send you a file, without the requirement of account management. dl is usually installed as a replacement for email attachments due to its simplicity (though it can be used in other ways).
