Just do something like: gpg --with-colons --fast-list-mode --list-keys \ | awk -F: '$1=3D=3D"pub" {print $5}' | sort | uniq \ | xargs -n 20 gpg --recv-keys Some people would prefer to use perl in place of the awk|sort|uniq pipe or do the duplicate removal within awk but this was the first thing I thought of and the performance of the --recv-key operation dwarfs any minor inefficiencies in the rest of the pipeline. --=20 Dave Chapeskie <> OpenPGP Key Fingerprint: 348F EE70 9845 22C4 857E 3B8A 5AA9 1CFD 3D2B 6B34 --AqsLC8rIMeq19msA Content-Type: application/pgp-signature Content-Disposition: inline -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.5 (FreeBSD) iEYEARECAAYFAjsnoGYACgkQWqkc/T0razRdvgCgu0Efe/ATHjAlJ8SJWoVIFiSk Y6YAoL0+2MStHA1vUY/cW4/ofYZOWZMC =lXfN -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- --AqsLC8rIMeq19msA--
