gg [-23Nnq] [-C cert] [-d mode] [-H sni] [-K key] [-P host[:port]] [-T secondsgemini://...

gg (gemini get) fetches the given gemini page and prints it to standard output.

The options are as follows:

Use TLSv1.2.
Use TLSv1.3.
Use the given client certificate.
Specify what gg should print. mode can be one of:
print only the body of the reply, the default.
print only the response code.
print only the response header.
print only the response meta.
print the whole response as-is.
Use the given sni host name instead of the one deducted by the IRI or proxy.
Specify the key for the certificate. It's mandatory if -C is used.
Disables the server name verification.
Check the given IRI for validity, but don't issue any requests.
Connect to the given host and port to do the request instead of the ones extracted by the IRI. port is by default 1965.
Don't print server error messages to standard error.
Kill gg after seconds.

The gg utility exits with zero if the response code was in the 2x range. If a failure occurs, it exits with status code 1. Otherwise, the error code reflects the Gemini response code.

gg uses the “Flexible and Economical” UTF-8 decoder written by Bjoern Hoehrmann.
