Borland Pascal & C long ago had a function which allowed a program to
find itself on disk and work with that information. I dont know if GCC
has such a function. Running off CD would be the best of all worlds for
GNUPG with a directory structure something like:
o _____ | CWSIV_HOME1@JUNO.COM |
.][__n_n_|DD[ ====_____ | M A R K L I N T R A I N S |
_/oo OOOOO oo` ooo ooo 'o!o!o o!o!o`
