gpg ciphers and data size

with symmetric  encryption and GUNpgp we can get a baseline of the size impact based on the data and ciphers that are  used.

I was bored and decided to just see what my GNUpgp version could do;

example  a text file with the date

example a mpg3 music file

In cases, I used a simple and same passphrase "testtest" for all ciphers.

You can validate your  cipher preference in your conf  file.
