Because I read the BT Specification, it tells me that the tracker can
respond me the peer id.

>Just wondering, why compact=0?
 Compact = 0 because I don't want to accept a compact response from the
tracker. I tried to use compact =1 , but it gives me some "Strange" words.
However, if i use compact =0 , it can show me port and IP without giving me
some "Strange" words.

 Sorry, I don't understand what you mean . Can you tell me more ?
  In fact, I am implementing a small programme to communicate with other
I just want to get the information of the peers instead of download or
upload anything to them...
First of all, I need to get the peer id from the tracker in order to
communicate with them.
However, I only can get the IP and port of the peers from the tracker.
Can you give me some ideas on getting the peer id of the peers from the
tracker ?
  Thank you for your reply . I look forward to hearing from you.
