DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the gpg-zip command.

       gpg-zip encrypts or signs files into an archive. It is an gpg-ized tar using the same for-
       mat as PGP's PGP Zip.

	      Decrypt data.

       -c, --symmetric
	      Encrypt  with  a symmetric cipher using a passphrase.  The default symmetric cipher
