Yes, of course! I didn't look at the builtins of my shell :) Another question: Is it possible to say gpg it has to create a signature with ".sig" as extension, not ".asc"? I know, I could do it with a script, but this isn't such elegant as to say gpg to do it. I know, ".sig" is for signatures in binary form, but I need ascii armored signatures to share them via FTP and I think ".sig" sounds much better as ".asc".

No, I don't have quotes in my filenames.

find -exec on my Linux box does weird things too. It signs no file at all. Cheers, Thomas -- Thomas Bader <>, Powered by LINUX 2.2 Infos und Tipps zu Linux, HOWTOs des DLHP <> => Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with your Microsoft product.
