I have a suggestion though: IMHO this format should be called "putty" instead of ppk (unless there are other possible putty formats?). And several of your other recent formats are totally unkown to me, with abbreviations like sxc, nk and pfx. In several cases, a tad longer format label would much more self-descriptive. And even more important, the FORMAT_NAME should be *much* more descriptive. I have a vague memory pfx is something very common, but it just says "pfx" even in FORMAT_NAME and I just don't know what it is without searching list archives. magnum
