Even then I think he wanted it all in a single file.
As for 'foo' and 'fubar', etc. It's all based on well mis-understood
mathematical functions. It's like f(x) or f'(x) or f"(x). Or, just th=

With all due respect Armin, the instructions exactly as you have listed=
do not exist in the "man page". What you have typed is a reflection of
your expertise in using GPG... not something you get by reading the
Manual once. ;o)
BTW, why does GnuPG use terms like "foo" and "man page"? The terms are
non-sensical... I've never even heard the term man page before... and
"foo" doesn't even exist?
