I pulled it down and found it to be a "nice little app" with certain
problems evident from the beginning. The major bug is **no source code**!!
How can I trust an app to make my keys? Why don't I just ask the NSA for
What I would have liked (and expected) was a set of diff (or changed) files
from the PGP 2.0 distribution, and perhaps an extra top-level app-maker
file to put the nice wisiwyg on top. This would show me an example, and
let me build PGP into other apps that I might build.
The next bug is no email address for Z. Fiedorowicz, so I can't complain to
And the third apparent bug (now I haven't used this much yet) is that the
help file offers help for the standard MPW-style command line operations,
but the app is entirely menu-driven.
I hope that ZF doesn't take this as purely negative. I am sure that he did
a good implementation, and I thank him for doing the work and for providing
a nice gui. But I would especially like to get the source code (preferably
as minimal changes to the standard distribution so that it is clear that
the same internals are used for each).
