NAME
       gpg-zip - Encrypt or sign files into an archive

SYNOPSIS
       gpg-zip [options] filename1 [ filename2, ... ] directory1 [ directory2, ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       gpg-zip	encrypts  or  signs  files into an archive.  It is an gpg-ized tar using the same
       format as used by PGP's PGP Zip.

OPTIONS
       gpg-zip understands these options:

       --encrypt

       -e     Encrypt data.  This option may be combined with --symmetric (for	output	that  may
	      be decrypted via a secret key or a passphrase).

       --decrypt

       -d     Decrypt data.

       --symmetric

       -c     Encrypt  with  a symmetric cipher using a passphrase.  The default symmetric cipher
	      used is CAST5, but may be chosen with the --cipher-algo option to gpg.

       --sign

       -s     Make a signature.  See gpg.
