First of all, that's laughable. Take a look at GPG's code and PGP's code and it's obvious that they aren't copies of each other. Second, if someone wanted to copy PGP, what's to reverse engineer?! PGP's source is freely availible. You can download it and look at it or compile it or whatever. You don't have to "reverse engineer" anything. =) -- Archive is at - Unsubscribe by sending mail with a subject of "unsubscribe" to
