How can I access certain GnuPG functionality not directly supported by Robo-FTP? (Robo-FTP 3.5.x and earlier)

Note: This article does not apply to version 3.6 or later.

Beginning with v1.50.4 (SP3), Robo-FTP supports a new command that allows "raw" GnuPG commands to be passed to "gpg.exe" (the PGP component of Robo-FTP). This command is documented here and in the help file but is otherwise not supported. The command is:

PGPCOMMAND [ GnuPG options ] [ log file name ]

For example, to list the keys on your keyring, the command would be:

PGPCOMMAND "--list-keys" "gnupg.log"

To list the fingerprints, the command would be:

PGPCOMMAND "--fingerprint" "gnupg.log"

The results from PGPCOMMAND are written to the specified log file which is created in the Robo-FTP working folder (unless a fully qualified file name is provided). If you want to have access to this information within your script, you'll need to write script code using the READFILE script command to parse this file.
