You do not need to know what file the key is in. As long as it is in
your keyring, gpg can extract it. This is what the --extract option
does. The --armor option give you the output in ASCII instead of
binary. The --outfile option will send the output to a file instead
of displaying it in the terminal. (The defaults sends it to the
