Pgpgpg is a wrapper arround Gnu Privacy Guard which takes PGP 2.6 command line options, translate them and then call GnuPG (Gnu Privacy Guard) to perform the desired action.
PGP and GnuPG are encryption programms with high security encryption engines. However, PGP is available without a fee but is not realy free software. GnuPG on the other hand is realy free software and have additionally features but have a different command line syntax then PGP.
The goal of pgpgpg is to plug in a command line syntax in front of GnuPG equal to PGP 2.6. With pgpgpg most scripts and applications written to use PGP 2.6 should normally work with GnuPG too. By using pgpgpg these applications also benefits from the fact that GnuPG doesn't use the patented,non and commercial free RSA nor IDEA algorithmn.
· All applications which try to parse the output of PGP 2.6 especially the output of keyring listings will not work very well with the current pgpgpg release.
· However, all applications wich just fires PGP to encrypt, sign or decrypt should work very well with pgpgpg.
What's New in This Release:
· pgpopts.c: pgpopts_build_argv() documentation enhanced and guessing the type of armored data on decryption added.
· Makefile.am: Added guessarmortype.[ch] guessarmortype.[ch]: New. Function to guess the type of armored data.
