I am using the GNUPG tool for performing encryption/decryption using the command line. While deleting the public key I am giving the following command :
gpg2 --quite --yes --delete-key "Solveon DB"
After the command gets executed I get the question
Delete this key from the keyring? (y/N)
I dont want this question to be asked. Can you suggest which option to use. I tried specifying the fingerprint but I couldn't figure out the use.
1 hour ago - 4 days left to answer. I had created a C# wrapper class to use the tool but when using delete option it hangs the application as its waiting for answer to the question.
