As a Unix tool GPG is designed to work on arbitrary data lengths.  The
problem is mereley that at one point gpg needs to see the end of the
data to check the signature (or at least the MDC).  Thus the command pairs

  tar cf - . | gpg -er foo | tooltosenddata

  tooltorecvdata | gpg --batch | tar xf -

should always work.  scp is much easier, though.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
