You should take a look at --status-fd. It's format is described in the DETAILS
file in the documentation.

Oh, and if you wish to parse output that's not on --status-fd (like --list-key),
you should always include --with-colons. Again, see the documentation and DETAILS.

The human-readable output is not meant to be parsed by machines. That's why it
adapts to the language environment (l10n).



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
