Sorry, I earlier posted this with an old thread in the subject.
PGP 9 stores the file name in the encrypted data. You can take a file
xyz.pgp, decrypt it, and return it to the original "My Word Doc.DOC". There
is nothing externally visible, either in a PGP Partitioned message, nor in a
hex dump of the PGP data, to indicate the original file name.
I don't see any way in GPG to read the original file name, or to write the
output to a file of the original name (or conversely to set the file name).
Is this possible? I'm using GPG 1.4.1.
