A easy way to do this is:

  GNUPGHOME=/foo/bar gpg-agent --daemon sh

and then do whatever you want in this shell.  If you are done run give
an exit and with a few seconds that gpg-agent will be terminated.  That
is how I do almost all tests.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
