It seems when I generate a signature file (detached in this case) the file is a binary file. Is there any way to make it behave the same way as PGP Desktop and have it generate a text encoded signature file?
Thanks, Ned

You can encode the resulting data using base64. Use SBUtils.Unit.Base64Encode() function (use reflection to see it's parameters).

Sincerely yours

I'm sorry, I guess I am not doing this correctly. I am trying to generate a signature file that looks exactly like one created with PGP 9. I think they create them base64 encoded (and maybe compressed??).
Obviously I can create the lines like
but when I create the file, while Eldos is able to verify the signature, PGP is not -- AND the base64 text looks very different.

What do I need to do to generate a file that looks like a .Sig file from PGP?

Please consider setting Armor property to true. It seems to be exactly what you need.
