gpg-zip - Encrypt or sign files into an archive

gpg-zip [options] filename1 [ filename2, ... ] directory1 [ directory2, ... ]

gpg-zip encrypts or signs files into an archive. It is an gpg-ized tar using the same format as used by PGP's PGP Zip.

gpg-zip understands these options:

Encrypt data. This option may be combined with --symmetric (for output that may be decrypted via a secret key or a passphrase).

Decrypt data.

Encrypt with a symmetric cipher using a passphrase. The default symmetric cipher used is CAST5, but may be chosen with the --cipher-algo option to gpg.

Make a signature. See gpg.

--recipient user
-r user
Encrypt for user id user. See gpg.

--local-user user
-u user
Use user as the key to sign with. See gpg.

List the contents of the specified archive.

--output file
-o file
Write output to specified file file.

--gpg gpgcmd
Use the specified command gpgcmd instead of gpg.

--gpg-args args
Pass the specified options to gpg.

--tar tarcmd
Use the specified command tarcmd instead of tar.

--tar-args args
Pass the specified options to tar.

Print version of the program and exit.

Display a brief help page and exit.
