I have this problem. I am writing an application in android for the GNUPG.
for that I want to add the commands in the android package itself. whether
I need to install the Gaurdian GNUPG and then call the commands from my
application, or can I able to call the application gnupg with the library
in my application itself, I can integrate the gnupg?.

this is for android application.
