encrypting multiple files into a single output file

With PGP you can do something like:
	pgp -e -r <pgpkey> <filelist> -o <output file name> --archive

This will create a single "output file name" with the entire "filelist" each individually encrypted.

Using PGP, when we had multiple files to  deliver, we could have each file encrypted and placed into a PGP archive. The client could then decipher the archive to extract al the encrypted files.

what is the format of the archive you were used to creating with PGP?

Are you talking about PGP's "self-decrypting archive" format?


Or some other format?  If you're not sure about the details, can you
send a small example archive (containing non-sensitive material,
obviously) to the list, or to me privately?
