Command Line Use of GPG

*Using*:  Using Windows XP with SP3, Thunderbird,
          GPG 1.49, and Enigmail 0.95.7.  No problems.

*Question*:  How -- independent of Enigmail or any other GUI -- can I
             use GPG via the command line procedure (e.g., to sign
             someone's key with a "trust" signature)?


For some reason the following approach won't let me access GPG:

    1.  "Start | Run" gpg --edit-key deadbeef.

    2.  C:\Documents and Settings\Kara> gpg --edit-key deadbeef

    3.  C:\> gpg --edit-key deadbeef

In each of the above attempts, the resulting error message is:
'gpg' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program or batch file."

Once I can access GPG via the command line, I know what to do from
that point on.
