au weia. warum weiss ich sowas nie? how come i dont know about such things? went to, 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.
