I recently tried out a "free software" version of PGP called GnuPG
(www.gnupg.org). It is command-line based, which I don't mind, but for
some reason keys are being generated with funny looking characters,
the same way binary text looks when opened in a text editor. I don't
think I did anything wrong. I typed 'gpg --key-gen' and answered the
questions. But when I opened us the pubring.gpg file (and the other
.gpg file), it did not look like normal PGP encryption. I am using the
Windows port of GnuPG, if that matters.
Also, is GnuPG better than PGP 6.x?
