8.4.7 Listing global options
Sometimes it is useful for applications to look at the global options
The colon separated listing format is record oriented and uses the first
field to identify the record type:
- This describes a key record to start the definition of a new ruleset for
a user/group. The format of a key record is:
- This is the user field of the key. It is percent escaped. See the
definition of the gpgconf.conf format for details.
- This is the group field of the key. It is percent escaped.
- This describes a rule record. All rule records up to the next key record
make up a rule set for that key. The format of a rule record is:
- This is the component part of a rule. It is a plain string.
- This is the option part of a rule. It is a plain string.
- This is the flags part of a rule. There may be only one flag per rule
but by using the same component and option, several flags may be
assigned to an option. It is a plain string.
- This is the optional value for the option. It is a percent escaped
string with a single quotation mark to indicate a string. The quotation
mark is only required to distinguish between no value specified and an
Unknown record types should be ignored. Note that there is intentionally
no feature to change the global option file through gpgconf.
