Programming Gasket Grille Cypher
In general, Guild Pidgin are written for use as the lettered sheet, while the programming gasket is encoded for some other purpose for machines using the Data Engines Limited computing architecture. These choices make the use of programming gasket grille cyphers appealing to agents from the Commonwealth of C, as both Guild Pidgin and programming gaskets are already familiar parts of the administrative functions of the Commonwealth government. At the same time, a single gasket or page of notes in Pidgin would not draw suspicion if encountered in other regions of the Manifold due to the ubiquity of the Navigator's Guild - and, in fact, the serious reputation of that organization might even dissuade further investigation. For this same reason, the cypher also sees occasional use by Guild members seeking to convey information to their superiors without drawing the attention of their current clients. For example, a navigator might use his current guild contract card as a grille and compose a message warning that the clients are going to renege on the terms of that card and are not to be trusted for further business.
