sq inspect - Inspects data, like file(1)

sq inspect [OPTIONS] FILE

Inspects data, like file(1).

It is often difficult to tell from cursory inspection using cat(1) or file(1) what kind of OpenPGP one is looking at. This subcommand inspects the data and provides a meaningful human-readable description of it.

`sq inspect` respects the reference time set by the top-level `--time` argument. It uses the reference time when determining what binding signatures are active.

Reads the specified certificate from the certificate store
Prints third-party certifications
Reads from FILE or stdin if omitted

See sq(1) for a description of the global options.
