Hi guys, first post, so bare with me...

Been playing about with the .NET PGP encryption/decryption and found it all very good. However one problem is stumping me and despite checking the documentation and this site I still can't find a solution.

How do I create and ASCII output for encryption? If I was using the command line gpg.exe, then a flag of -a would achieve it but I can't see where I set it for the library.

Sorry if this is a blatantly obvious question but, as I say, it's got me stumped.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

It's called "armoring". You should use property Armor of TElPGPWriter.
This feature is implemented in our sample applications (PGPKeys/PGPFiles), so take a look over them.

Brilliant thanks for that, I'll check that out. Got to admit I looked at armoring but to my detriment I wasn't aware the ASCII format was called that.

Mykola, just to confirm, I have that working now.

Once again, thanks for the prompt reply.
