       nasty - A tool which helps you to recover your GPG passphrase


       nasty [OPTIONS]


       nasty is a program that helps you to recover the passphrase of your PGP or GPG-key in case
       you forget or lost it.


       -a x   set minimum length of passphrase

       -b x   set maximum length

       -m x   set guessing mode:
                 incremental: try them all
                 random: try at random
                 file: read phrases from file (use -i)

       -i x   file to read the passphrases from

       -f x   file to write the found passphrase to

       -c x...
              charset, one or more from the following:
                 a: a-z
                 A: A-Z
                 0: 0-9
                 .: all ascii values (32...126)
                 +: 32...255 (default(!))

       -h     show command options


       Nasty will not work if you try it with a gpg-agent running in  your  system.  For  obvious
       reasons  the  agent  will  ask  you  the passphrase to access your private key - which you
       probably don't record, right? :)
