7 Contexts

All cryptographic operations in GPGME are performed within a context, which contains the internal state of the operation as well as configuration parameters. By using several contexts you can run several cryptographic operations in parallel, with different configuration.

— Data type: gpgme_ctx_t

The gpgme_ctx_t type is a handle for a GPGME context, which is used to hold the configuration, status and result of cryptographic operations.
