We can make GnuPG process files >2G simply by using the open64 function. To allow piping data to or from gpg you need a shell which can also handle this (i.e. uses open64). GnuPG does not use lseek so this is not a problem. Werner -- Werner Koch GnuPG key: 621CC013 OpenIT GmbH -- Archive is at - Unsubscribe by sending mail with a subject of "unsubscribe" to
