How to view torrent file content on Linux

A torrent file (i.e., a file with .torrent extension) is a BitTorrent metadata file which stores information (e.g., tracker URLs, file list, sizes, checksums, creation date) needed by a BitTorrent client to download files shared on BitTorrent peer-to-peer networks. Inside a single torrent file, one or more files can be listed for sharing.
