dearmor - Converts ASCII to binary

dearmor [-o|--output] [-h|--help] [FILE]

Converts ASCII to binary

To make encrypted data easier to handle and transport, OpenPGP data can be transformed to an ASCII representation called ASCII Armor. sq transparently handles armored data, but this subcommand can be used to explicitly convert existing ASCII-encoded OpenPGP data to its binary representation.

The converse operation is "sq armor".
