using GNUpg as part of a web application

I'm using PHP to build a fairly complex set of web applications, of which
encryption is an important part.

I need the following functions:

-encrypt($key, $plaintext)
returns cyphertext

-decrypt($key, $cyphertext)
returns plaintext

returns key string

My question is as follows:

It appears that GNUpg _will_not_ accept a passed key or even external file
reference for a key. This will likely prevent me from using it, which is why
I am sending mail to this list to verify that fact... is it indeed true?

If so, why?

please e-mail me directly as I have not subscribed to the list.
