BTW, the tool gpg-error is a quick way to get this data:

  $ gpg-error 18
               = (Unspecified source, Wrong secret key used)

You can also do "gpg-error --list" to grep for things.  errorref.txt has
more detailed descriptions for some error codes.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
