Here is some code to do command line completion for gpg when using

The goal is to save you some typing when using gpg.

gpg -[TAB] 
will complete with all the the option names that start with a -

gpg --[TAB]
will complete with all the options that start with --

gpg --digest-algo[TAB] 
will complete with all the digest algorithms names. 

You should change the gpg_keyservers variable to contain the
keyservers that you use...

I could add completion for the --recipient option, but I don't know
how to get that information (it can be done with a shell command)...

If people find this usefull, it could be added to the gpg

Add the following to your .cshrc  and try it.

if ($?tcsh) then

set noglob

set gpg_keyservers = ( ANOTHER_KEYSERVER)

complete gpg c/--/"(sign clearsign detach-sign encrypt symmetric        \
