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.
