What exactly are you looking for?

If you want to encrypt, decrypt, sign, or verify OpenPGP messages
from a program you are writing, and you want to use GnuPG for
this, you may take a look at the "GnuPG Made Easy" library -

Once you download and install it, there will be a file
which you may examine through any texinfo browser, such as
the "info" or "pinfo" command-line tools.

If that's not what you mean by "UNIX API documentation for GPG",
you'll have to explain a bit better what you are looking for :)

Hope that helps.

If there were no counterfactuals, this sentence would not have been paradoxical.
