Well hello there.
As a way of circumventing WinXP's command prompt's inability to handle wildcards when working with GnuPG, I figured I'd try "gpgtar --create (--encrypt or what have you) --files-from foo.txt" instead, but all it does is output a couple of rather cryptic error messages:
gpgtar: --files-from and --null may only be used in conjunction
gpgtar: --files-from only supports argument "-"
Surely I tried typing in the whole address for the text file (with and without quotes), different combination of line endings and positions for the arguments, and even "-" in places that common sense tells me would have never worked anyways, but to no avail.
Now I'm not saying this is necessarily a bug; but if it isn't, please let this be a request for clearer documentation on this particular feature.
Thanks a bunch.
