PGP(1)                                                        PGP(1)



NAME
       pgpgpg  -  wrapper around Gnu Privacy Guard that takes Pretty
       Good Privacy command line options

SYNOPSIS
       pgpgpg [options] pgpfile

       pgpgpg -e [options] file user ...

DESCRIPTION
       PGPGPG is a wrapper that allows calls to GnuPG  (Gnu  Privacy
       Guard)  using  the  command line options of (Pretty Good Pri‐
       vacy). PGP and GnuPG are encryption programms with high secu‐
       rity  encryption engines.  However,  PGP is available without
       a fee but is not realy free software.  GnuPG  on   the  other
       hand   is   realy free software and has additionally features
       but with a different command line syntax than PGP.

       The  goal  of pgpgpg is to plug in a command line  syntax  in
       front of GnuPG equal to PGP 2.6.


OPTIONS
       The  following  options  are  supported by pgpgpg notice that
       long options do not  use  the  usual  GNU  syntax  (--)  but,
       instead are of the form +option[=value].
