Oohh, this is exactly what I want in the first place! This doesn't seem to be mentioned in the man page though. It is also limited to a single file and it gives strange output: --keyring <keyring> --fingerprint pub:q:1024:1:CE951B1160D74C7D:1999-05-01::553:-:Patrick Cole <z@amused.net>: fpr:::::::::C8E0BC7969BE7899AA0FEB16F84BFE5A: gpg <keyring> pub:q:1024:1:CE951B1160D74C7D:1999-05-01:::: rtv:1:0: uid:::::::::Patrick Cole <z@amused.net>: rtv:2:0: I need the key fingerprint and I don't know what rtv is for..

Does it disable any functions? dry-run seems like a bad name to me in that case, maybe 'read only mode' or something would be better? -n does work, but it creates the secring and trustdb, but does not enter anything into them: samosa{jgg}~/keys#gpg --dry-run --no-options --batch --load-extension rsa --keyring ./debian-keyring.pgp --keyring ./debian-keyring.gpg --with-colons --fingerprint > t gpg: /home/jgg/.gnupg/secring.gpg: keyring created gpg: /home/jgg/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created Thanks, Jason
