If I recieved a public key via E-Mail, but I am not sure whether
I want to import it. Can gnupg before importing

- display the ID of it (readable by other programs)
- display E-Mail, Name
- display signatures on the key
- display other information (key type, length)

Thanks for any help,


P.S.: Thank you David for the --status-fd hint, does mostly what I want!

Keep it simple & stupid, use what's available.
Please use pgp encryption: 8D0E 27A4 is my id.
