Could someone please tell me what switches are implied by the pgp7
switch? It doesn't seem to be documented anywhere yet.
What makes me curious is the fact that I can use gpg to create a
ciphertext with these attributes: dsa, idea, z0
PGP 6.5.8 (domestic) has a problem decrypting this. It accepts my
password and doesn't report a problem; but no plaintext output. It
just drops the ball.
Then PGP 6.5.1 (international) has no problem with this ciphertext.
When I throw the pgp7 switch, same result: pgp 6.5.8 fails, pgp 6.5.1i
Okay, so pgp 6.5.8 should not work w/ the pgp7 switch, and when I use
the pgp6 or pgp2 switch there is no problem (as expected).
What I'm trying to figure out is why the older international version
CAN decrypt this; what's the difference? I thought pgpi was just a
scanned version of pgp, so pgpi should be behind pgp.
(I'd also like to point out that pgp7 should be added to the man
