Use the source, Luke.

That is the OpenPGP algorithm number: 22 = EdDSA, 18 = ECDH.

In gnupg/scd/app-openpgp.c:do_setattr you will find the mapping from the
name to the actual DO as specified in the OpenPGP card specs . Some
mappings can't be done directly and it will instead be done by calling a
function, for example
In (VALUE,VALUELEN), it expects following string:
RSA: "--force <key> <algo> rsa<nbits>"
ECC: "--force <key> <algo> <curvename>"
change_keyattr_from_string (app_t app,
With the exception of the new ECC features the source of GPA, and in
particular gpa/src/cm-openpgp.c, is a good example on how to control
scdaemon from another application.
