       sexp-conv - convert s-expression to a different encoding


       sexp-conv [OPTION]...  < INPUT-SEXP

       sexp-conv --hash[=algorithm] [OPTION]...  < INPUT-SEXP


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the sexp-conv command.  This manual page was written
       for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a  manual
       page.  Instead, it has documentation in the GNU Info format; see below.

       sexp-conv  is  a  program  that  converts  S-expressions.  It automatically detects the s-
       expression syntax variant of the input. It is primarily used by the `lsh' packages,  which
       stores  keys  and  most  other  objects on disk in that format, but may be of other use as


       This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long  options  starting  with
       two  dashes  (`-').   A summary of options is included below.  For a complete description,
       see the Info files.

              Output only the hash of the s-expression, using algorithm (default: sha1).

              Alias for --hash, for compatibility with lsh 1.x.

       --once Process exactly one s-expression.

              Output an SPKI hash for the object. Not yet implemented.

       -s, --syntax=format
              Variant of S-expression to  output.  Valid  S-expression  formats  are:  transport,
              canonical (binary), advanced, and hex (same as advanced, but numbers in hex instead
              of base64).

       -w, --width=width
              Limit output to lines of width characters (has no effect on canonical syntax). Zero
              means no limit.

       -?, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -V, --version
              Show version of program.


       ssh-conv(1), lsh(1), lshd(8),
       The  programs are documented fully by the sexp section under the Getting Started header of
       the lsh info page, available via the Info system.


       This program should be documented in the nettle manual, not in the lsh manual.
