Can someone tell me the difference between to two commands below?
gpg -r ####### --armor --sign --encrypt <INFILE > OUTFILE
gpg -r ####### --armor --sign --encrypt --textmode < INFILE > OUTFILE

We are using the first command for our GPG encryption today, but may have a
need to use the --textmode for a new recipient.  The encryption process
today handles text file, and some binary (read zip, or M.S. Office type)
files.  What will the impact be of adding the --textmode to the command, or
to the options file?
