Catenates files while decrypting PGP-encrypted sections

Guncat acts like unix's cat command, but handles (partially) encrypted sections of processed files. Sections of guncat's input files which are surrounded by -----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE----- and


END PGP MESSAGE----- markers are decrypted before being

concatenated to the standard output stream.

Guncat's output (i.e., the standard output stream) may subsequently be processed by other programs, like grep or less. Guncat supports reading a decryption passphrase either from stdin or from gpg-agent.

Guncat stands for (Gpg UNencrypting CAT) and was designed to facilitate searching through (partially) PGP encrypted files, as encountered in mailboxes, for example.
