OpenPGP (RFC-4880) has several ways to encode a packet header. This first byte is called the CTB and reads: 0x10011001 !^^^^##- 0x01 = 2 length bytes follow. !!------- 0x06 = Public key !-------- Clear = Old style CTB 0x11000110 !^^^^^^ !!------- 0x06 = Public Key !-------- Set = New style CTB For a new style CTB the length bytes are Hufmann like encoded. Bit 7 is always set. A basic parser can be found in gpgme/src/data-identify.c Shalom-Salam, Werner -- # Please read: Daniel Ellsberg - The Doomsday Machine # Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
