Hi all,

I've cut & paste this from the gpg man page

 -s, --sign      Make   a   signature.  This  command  may  be combined 
with --encrypt.

 --clearsign    Make a clear text signature.

Isn't clear for me the difference between this 2 options

anyone can explain me that ?

for me seems the same things but I'm quite sure I'm loosing something

thanks in advance
