.SH NAME
gpgcompose \- Generate a stream of OpenPGP packets

.SH SYNOPSIS
.B gpgcompose
.RI [[ OPTION
.RI [ ARGS ]]
\&... ]

.B gpgcompose --help

.B gpgcompose
.I OPTION
.B --help

.SH DESCRIPTION
.B 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
.BR \-\-help .

.SH EXTERNAL DEPENDENCIES

.B gpgcompose
is not capable of performing secret key operations on its own.
Creation of any OpenPGP object that requires secret key operations
(e.g.,
.BR \-\-signature )
will need to speak to an already-running
.BR gpg-agent .

.SH FILES

Occasionally,
.B gpgcompose
will need to look up existing public keys for reference (e.g.,
.BR \-\-public-key ).
It will do so in
.BR ~/.gnupg/keyring.kbx,
or in
.B $GNUPGHOME/keyring.kbx
if that variable is set.
