A user has created a key pair with puttygen.   They have sent me the. pub key.   I would like to copy and paste it into their authorized_keys file.   But it is in the wrong format, is there a utility that will reformat the file?   Or can someone expain how to easily do this.  A windows utility would be best, but any suggestions would help.
