Is this a Turing test? I wrote a private reply to try
to find if that is what is happening. I mean, is
"--sign" as opposed to "-sign" that hard to understand?
Here is what -sign chould probably mean:
-s same as --sign
-i same as --interactive
-n same as --dry-run.
That is because -sign is the equivalent of -s -i -g -n.
My private reply was with the aim of convincing a human
being the right way to do things and that gpg & gpg2 do
the standard of a single dash means all the letters after
the single dash are combined options. If you want all of
the characters being considered a single atomic identity
then you precede them with a double dash. A lot more detail
was added with an example to show how easy it is.
