a Mini vMac Extra


this command line tool for your computer

SigChkTl is a command line version of SigCheck. It can be used to automate checking the digital signatures that are used throughout this website. It is written to be platform independent, using the C standard library.

It takes two arguments: First, a path to a file containing a signed message. And second, a path to a file containing a public key, in ascii armored format.

If the signature is correctly signed, SigChkTl will return a zero result ("$?" in bash, "{status}" in MPW). Otherwise the result will be non-zero.

SigChkTl is in part descended from MacPGP source code, which, as far as I can tell, allows derived works for noncommercial use.

sigchktl-1.02.src_d.zip (info) Classic Macintosh style: a zipped hfs disk image and checksum file. The disk image can be mounted with Mini vMac.


If you find SigChkTl useful, please consider helping the Gryphel Project, of which it is a part.
