Does anyone know where to get worked out examples of OpenPGP's CFB mode encryption? I know RFC 4880 explains it very precisely, but I managed to mess it up somehow.

I got one example from asking on stackoverflow, but i cannot get the correct ciphertext, and my calculation seems correct.

Observe a working library in operation (add printfs to the code or run it in a debugger). OpenSSL and LibTomCrypt both support CFB for a variety of ciphers. – Gilles Jul 7 '12 at 20:33
ive tried that, and either i cant build the project, cant figure out which values to show, or both – calccrypto Jul 7 '12 at 23:23
It seems this would be more ontopic at Cryptography, though as it is I'm not sure it would be a good fit for them (ala plz send the codez). – AviD Aug 18 '12 at 20:42
