+.TH GNUNET\-ECC 1 "Mar 15, 2012" "GNUnet"
+gnunet\-ecc \- manipulate GNUnet ECC key files
+.B gnunet\-ecc
+.RI [ options ] FILENAME
+\fBgnunet\-ecc\fP can be used to create an ECC private key and to print the corresponding public key. You must specify a filename containing an ECC private key in GNUnet format as an argument. If the file does not exist, gnunet\-ecc will create a key. This may then take a while. If the option \-p is given, the corresponding public key will be printed to the console.
+.IP "\-g COUNT, \-\-generate-keys=COUNT"
+Create COUNT public-private key pairs and write them to FILENAME. Used for creating a file for testing.
+.IP "\-p, \-\-print-public-key"
+Print the corresponding public key to stdout.
+.IP "\-P, \-\-print-peer-identity"
+Print the corresponding peer identity (hash of the public key) to stdout. This hash is used for the name of peers.
+.IP "\-s, \-\-print-short-identity"
+Print the corresponding short hash (256-bit hash of the public key) to stdout. This hash is used for names in the zkey zone.
+.IP "\-c FILENAME, \-\-config=FILENAME"
+Use the configuration file FILENAME.
+.IP "\-h, \-\-help"
+Print short help on options.
+.IP "\-L LOGLEVEL, \-\-loglevel=LOGLEVEL"
+Use LOGLEVEL for logging. Valid values are DEBUG, INFO, WARNING and ERROR.
+.IP "\-v, \-\-version"
+Print GNUnet version number.
+Report bugs by using Mantis <> or by sending electronic mail to <gnunet\>
