gpgme-tool - Assuan server exposing GnuPG Made Easy operations
gpgme-tool [--server|-s] [--gpgme-binary=FILE] [--lib-version] [--usage] [--version|-V] [--help|-?]
gpgme-tool is a test interface that can exercise the library functionality of GPGME. It is not currently intended for production use, but it can be a useful way to dynamically understand and experiment with the functionality available from the library.
Running this tool in Server mode (the default mode) results in a text-based, command-driven session. When the tool produces (on its standard output) a line beginning with OK or ERR, you can provide it with a command on its standard input. Try the command HELP to see a list of available commands. Commands are case-insensitive.
Status lines begin with an S, and data lines begin with a D.
gpgme-tool accepts the following options on the command line:
- Server mode (default)
- Use FILE for the GPG backend
- Show library version and terminate
- Print the currently installed version of GPGME to standard output.
- Print a list of command-line options.
- Print a synopsis of gpgme-tool's command line.
Below is an example interaction from a POSIX shell, with user-typed lines in italics, and data returned by gpgme-tool in bold:
user@host:~$ gpgme-tool OK GPGME-Tool 1.7.0 ready strerror 20 D Unknown compression algorithm <Unspecified source> OK version D 1.7.0 OK armor S ARMOR false OK armor true OK armor S ARMOR true OK bye OK closing connection user@host:~$
The GPGME library is written by many contributors, including Werner Koch, Marcus Brinkmann, Andre Heinecke, Justus Winter, and Karl-Heinz Zimmer.
This manual page page was written by Daniel Kahn Gillmor for the Debian distribution (but may be used by others).
