au weia. warum weiss ich sowas nie? how come i dont know about such
things? went to ftp.gnupg.org/..., picked up idea.c and rsa.c, read the
license declarations, the compilation procedures, did as told, and:
Cipher: IDEA, 3DES, CAST5, BLOWFISH, TWOFISH
Pubkey: RSA, RSA-E, RSA-S, ELG-E, DSA, ELG
but of course, whenever things improve, people want more. i'm no
different. how do i _generate_ rsa's? not that it matters much, i can
always use pgp(263i|5i) for that, but then, the sources include the
facility, i just cannot tell gpg 1.0.1 to use it. or can i? the day
will come when rsa is no longer the least common denominator, and decent
people will generate what god made them for, but will i live to see my
nephew type|say "gpg --gen-key rsa"? well. september 20th, 2000.
to put it shortly: thanks for the info, frank.
