GnuPG Return Value

I found that it was easier to turn on --verbose --verbose (yep twice = even
more verbose) and parse the stdout.
If it says something like "Good Signature from blah" then you not only know
the message was signed,
but you can make sure it was signed with the key you expected ...

    I'm  developing an Access XP application which uses GnuPG digital
signatures. I'm at  a loss on how to retrieve GnuPG's return value
indicating success or failure of  signature verification or other
operations. Any help will be greatly  appreciated.

Thanks in  advance,
