Incorrect Tip

In the misc section:

Sending binary data files in ASCII-armored format without encryption
or signature (using pgp command line package.)

pgp -a < binary_filename>


This command instructs PGP to produce an ASCII-armored file called
filename.asc . The recipient uses the -p option to unwrap the message
and restore the sender s original filename.pgp -p filename.asc You can
then store the files in a email message or database table in text
format.

This is Incorrect.

This does not work with GPG version 1.2.1
For gpg command to act, it requires an option as well as a command.
-a is an option and no command is being given.

Kindly remove this tip.

Senthil
