NAME

gpgcompose - Generate a stream of OpenPGP packets

 

SYNOPSIS

gpgcompose [[OPTION [ARGS]] ... ]

gpgcompose --help

gpgcompose OPTION --help

 

DESCRIPTION

gpgcompose generates a stream of OpenPGP packets, including some which can include other nested packets within a layer of encryption. The syntax on the command line isn't stable enough to document currently, but additional hints and examples can be found from the command line using --help.

 

EXTERNAL DEPENDENCIES

gpgcompose is not capable of performing secret key operations on its own. Creation of any OpenPGP object that requires secret key operations (e.g., --signature) will need to speak to an already-running gpg-agent.

 

FILES

Occasionally, gpgcompose will need to look up existing public keys for reference (e.g., --public-key). It will do so in ~/.gnupg/keyring.kbx, or in $GNUPGHOME/keyring.kbx if that variable is set.
