Hey, isn't .sig the signature file that uses MD5 checksum? In that case, you need to use gpg to import the public key of the person/authority who has signed and use it to verify hspell.tar.gz . Read the gpg manual for more...
Good point. If it's an md5 checksum, you should have the other file (w/out the .sig) there as well and it can be opened as described above.
You don't need to use gpg to check md5 sums, just type md5sum hspell.tar.gz to see its md5sum and check that it is the same as the value in the .sig file (which can be viewed by 'cat hspell.tar.gz.sig'
