DESCRIPTIONGnuPG::Options objects are generally not instantiated on their own, but rather as part of a GnuPG::Interface object.
- new( %initialization_args )
- This methods creates a new object. The optional arguments are initialization of data members.
- hash_init( %args ).
- Returns a copy of this object. Useful for 'saving' options.
- Returns a list of arguments to be passed to GnuPG based on data members which are 'meta_' options, regular options, and then extra_args, in that order.
OBJECT DATA MEMBERS
These options correlate directly to many GnuPG options. For those that are boolean to GnuPG, simply that argument is passed. For those that are associated with a scalar, that scalar is passed passed as an argument appropriate. For those that can be specified more than once, such as recipients, those are considered lists and passed accordingly. Each are undefined or false to begin.
Meta OptionsMeta options are those which do not correlate directly to any option in GnuPG, but rather are generally a bundle of options used to accomplish a specific goal, such as obtaining compatibility with PGP 5. The actual arguments each of these reflects may change with time. Each defaults to false unless otherwise specified.
These options are being designed and to provide a non-GnuPG-specific abstraction, to help create compatibility with a possible PGP::Interface module.
To help avoid confusion, methods with take a form of a key as an object shall be prepended with _id(s) if they only take an id; otherwise assume an object of type GnuPG::Key is required.
- If true, arguments are generated to try to be compatible with PGP 5.x.
- If true, arguments are generated to try to be compatible with PGP 2.x.
- If false, arguments are generated to try to help the using program use GnuPG in a non-interactive environment, such as CGI scripts. Default is true.
- This scalar reflects the key used to sign messages. Currently this is synonymous with default-key.
- This GnuPG::Key object reflects the key used to sign messages.
- This list of scalar key ids are used to generate the appropriate arguments having these keys as recipients.
- This list of keys of the type GnuPG::Key are used to generate the appropriate arguments having these keys as recipients. You probably want to have this list be of the inherited class GnuPG::SubKey, as in most instances, OpenPGP keypairs have the encyrption key as the subkey of the primary key, which is used for signing.
Other Data Members
- This is a list of any other arguments used to pass to GnuPG. Useful to pass an argument not yet covered in this package.
