The documentation states that the verify() method can take either a single argument which is an arrayref containing an encrypted message or two arguments, one of which is an arrayref containing a message, and the other a detached signature. It is shown in the documentation as follows: verify(\@message, [\@signature]) This seems to imply, that in the two argument version the signature should be the second argument. However, at line 157 of GPG.pm, we have the line: my $message = ref($_[1]) ? join '', @{$_[1]} : $_[1]; which seems to be taking the message from the second argument, not the first. Moreover, the verify function just does not work if I follow the documentation, but it does work if I reverse the arguments. This would suggest that the documentation should read: verify([\@signature,] \@message) or the code needs to be fixed to have the message and signature go to the correct temporary files when there are two arguments. -- John Guthrie

I forgot to mention that I am using version 1.63 of Crypt::GPG. Thanks. -- John Guthrie
