Thanks for all your effort. I realize now that changing the cache values
involves a little more than changing a few values and that I am probably in
way over my head. I am basically just a dumb user who has no real
experience programming other than a little COBAL back in college 25 years
ago (don't laugh).
I read the agent-alter PDF and I get the gist of what it does. My problem
is I really unfamiliar with using terminal.
To use agent-alter do I just copy the code from the PDF and paste into
terminal or is more involved? I understand how to change the cache values
in agent-alter but beyond that I am pretty clueless.
If there are a few monkey-see monkey-do steps that I need to do to implement
alter-agent could you let me know what they are. If it is more involved
than that or if it is something I could easily screw up my system not
knowing what I am doing let me know and I will search for another encryption
Is there another front end to GnuPG besides GPG Tools that would allow me to
limit the time a password is cached?
I am using a mac running os x. I am using GPG Tools, Keychain Access
Version 0.8.13 (0.8.13)
