Hello everyone,

GnuPG version: 2.029

I'm new to GnuPG and so I have some questions that I cannot answer by 
reading the documentation.
GnuPG supports a lot of options and many commands. Is there anywhere in 
one of the the documentations a list of commands, for wchich a certain 
option can be used?
Maybe I have read the documentation too less carefully. In the 
description of the options tghere are mentioned some commands sometimes. 
But this seems to be an exeption.

Best regards
