Hello GNU Freedom loving people of the world!
This is not a problem, only a question:
Why is the output from GNUpg smaller than the input? For example, I have a
files that is 36,232,576 bytes before encryption, but is only 34,463,967
bytes after encryption. It seems that encryption would make it a bit bigger,
but it does just the opposite.
Is there some sort of compression that takes place during the process?
I run GNU/Linux (Kernel-2.4.9) with gcc 2.9.5-3 with GNUpg 1.0.6 with GPA
Keep up the great work!!!
