       pbput is a program that can upload text files, binary files or entire directory structures
       to a pastebin, such as

       pbget is a program that be used to retrieve content uploaded to a pastebin by pbput.

       pbputs operates exactly like pbput, except it encrypts the  data.   An  optional  GPG_USER
       argument  is  allowed,  which  will  sign and encrypt the data to the target user in one's
       keyring (which could be oneself!).  Otherwise,  the  user  is  prompted  for  a  symmetric
       passphrase   for  encrypting  the  content  with  gpg(1)  before  uploading.   pbget  will
       automatically prompt the receiving user for the pre-shared passphrase.

       pbput and pbputs can take its input either on STDIN, or as a FILENAME argument.
         - If STDIN is used, then the receiving user's pbget  will  simply  paste  the  input  on
         -  If  a FILENAME or DIRECTORY is passed as an argument, then it is first archived using
       tar(1) to preserve the file and directory attributes

       pbget takes a URL as its first, mandatory argument.  Optionally, it takes a DIRECTORY as a
       second  parameter.   If  the incoming data is in fact a file or file structure in a tar(1)
       archive, then that data will be extracted in the specified DIRECTORY.  If no DIRECTORY  is
       specified, then a temporary directory is created using mktemp(1).

       In  any  case  the  uploaded/downloaded data is optionally tar(1) archived, always lzma(1)
       compressed,   optionally    gpg(1)    encrypted,    and    always    base64(1)    encoded. is used by default.
