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
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.
