       The grid-proxy-info program extracts information from an X.509 proxy
       certificates, and optionally displays or returns an exit code based on
       that information.

       The default mode of operation is to print the following facts about the
       current user´s default proxy: subject, issuer, identity, type,
       strength, path, and time left. If the command-line option -exists or -e
       is included in the command-line, nothing is printed unless one of the
       print options is specified. Instead, grid-proxy-info determines if a
       valid proxy exists and, if so, exits with the exit code 0; if a proxy
       does not exist or is not valid, grid-proxy-info exits with the exit
       code 1. Additional validity criteria can be added by using the -valid,
       -v, -hours, -h, -bits, or -b command-line options. If used, these
       options must occur after the -e or -exists command-line options. Those
       options are only valid if one of the -e or -exists command-line options
       is used.

       The complete set of command-line options to grid-proxy-info are:

       -help, -usage
           Display the command-line options to grid-proxy-info.

           Display the version number of the grid-proxy-info command

           Display verbose error messages.

       -file PROXYFILE, -f PROXYFILE
           Read the proxy located in the file PROXYFILE instead of using the
           default proxy.

       -subject, -s
           Display the proxy certificate´s subject distinguished name.

       -issuer, -i
           Display the proxy certificate issuer´s distinguished name.

           Display the proxy certificate´s identity. For non-independent
           proxies, the identity is the subject of the certificate which
           issued the first proxy in the proxy chain.

           Display the type of proxy certificate. The type string includes the
           format ("legacy", "draft", or RFC 3280 compliant), identity type
           ("impersonation" or "independent"), and policy ("limited" or
           "full"). See grid-proxy-init(1) for information about how to create
           different types of proxies.

           Display the number of seconds remaining until the proxy certificate

           Display the strength (in bits) of the key associated with the proxy

           Display the default information for the proxy when also using the
           -e or -exists command-line option.

           Display the proxy certificate contents to standard output,
           including policy information, issuer, public key, and modulus.

           Display the path to the file containing the default proxy

           Display distinguished names for the subject, issuer, and identity
           using the string representation described in RFC 2253, instead of
           the legacy format.

       -exists, -e
           Perform an existence and validity check for the proxy. If a valid
           proxy exists and matches the criteria described by other
           command-line options (if any), exit with 0; otherwise, exit with 1.
           This option must be before other validity check predicate in the
           command-line options. If this option is specified, the output of
           the default facts about the proxy is disabled. Use the -all option
           to have the information displayed as well as the exit code set.

       -valid HOURS:MINUTES, -v HOURS:MINUTES, -hours HOURS, -h HOURS
           Check that the proxy certificate is valid for at least HOURS hours
           and MINUTES minutes. If it is not, grid-proxy-info will exit with
           exit code 1.

       -bits BITS, -b BITS
           Check that the proxy certificate key strength is at least BITS
