I switched my shell to bash, and now piping the output of gpg to more or less seems to work. My shell used to be tcsh. I had tried running bash, and then from that shell piping to less, but there it didn't work. But when my shell is bash in the first place, it does seem to work. I don't pretend to understand any of this. However, I guess the time has come for me to learn and adapt to using bash.... -Rob
