For me, in order to get the signature to verify, I first stripped the
carriage returns, and then put an echo before the "cat foo.asc" line.
So, in it's entirety:
( echo "-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----"
echo "Hash: SHA1"
perl -wpe "s/\r//" < foo
) | gpg --verify
This may be helpful to those of you writing small scripts.
