5 Parsing OpenPGP packets

The format of OpenPGP messages is maintained in order to publish all necessary information needed to develop interoperable applications. The standard is documented in RFC 2440.

PGG has its own parser for the OpenPGP packets.

— Function: pgg-parse-armor string

List the sequence of packets in string.

— Function: pgg-parse-armor-region start end

List the sequence of packets in the current region between start and end.

— Variable: pgg-ignore-packet-checksum

If non-nil, don't check the checksum of the packets.
