NAME
       keylookup - Fetch and Import GnuPG keys from keyservers.

SYNOPSIS
       keylookup [options] search-string

DESCRIPTION
       keylookup  is a wrapper around gpg --search, allowing you to search for
       keys on a keyserver.  It	presents the list of matching keys to the user
       and allows her to select	the keys for importing into the	GnuPG keyring.

       For the search and actual import	of keys	GnuPG itself is	called.

OPTIONS
       --keyserver=keyserver
	       Specify	the keyserver to use. If no keyserver is specified, it
	       will parse the GnuPG options file for a	default	 keyserver  to
	       use.  If	no keyserver can be found, keylookup will abort.

       --port=port
	       Use a port other	than 11371.

       --frontend=frontend
	       keylookup supports displaying the search	results	with 3 differ-
	       ent frondends. Both whiptail and	dialog are interactive and al-
	       low  the	user to	select the keys	to import.  The	third frontend
	       plain is	non-interactive	and just prints	the  keys  to  STDOUT.
	       The user	must then call GnuPG him/herself.

	       If  available,  /usr/bin/dialog	is  the	 default. If it	is not
	       available but /usr/bin/whiptail is installed, then this is used
	       instead.	If nothing else	works, we'll fall back to plain.

       --importall
	       Don't ask the user which	keys to	import,	but instead import all
	       keys matching the search-string.	If this	is given  no  frontend
	       is needed.

       --honor-http-proxy
	       Similar	to GnuP	keylookup will only honor the http_proxy envi-
	       ronment variable	if this	option is given. If it	is  not	 given
	       but  your  GnuPG	 options file includes it, then	keylookup will
	       use it.

       --help  Print a brief help message and exit successfully.

ENVIRONMENT
       HOME	 Used to locate	the default home directory.

       GNUPGHOME If set	directory used instead of "~/.gnupg".

       GNUPGBIN	 If set	used as	gpg binary instead of "gpg".

       http_proxy
		 Only honored when the option  --honor-http-proxy  is  set  or
		 honor-http-proxy is set in GnuPG's config file.

EXAMPLES
       keylookup Christian Kurz
	      will query your default keyserver	for Christian's	keys and offer
	      you to import them into your keyring with	 the  dialog  frontend
	      (if available).

       keylookup --honor-http-proxy --frontend plain wk@gnupg
	      will query the default keyserver again, now using	the http_proxy
	      if the environment variable is defined and list wk@gnupg's (Wer-
	      ner Koch)'s key on STDOUT.

       keylookup --keyserver pgp.mit.edu Peter Palfrader
	      will now ask the keyserver pgp.mit.edu for my (Peter's) keys and
	      display them for import in dialog.

FILES
       ~/.gnupg/options
		 GnuPG's options file where keylookup will take	the  keyserver
		 and honor-http-proxy values from if it	exists.
