I'm calling gpg from another program, redirecting fd's so I can pass
the passphrase, the message, and the signature between the programs
without writing temporary files.
I find that
gpg -sb --passphrase-fd #
will accept the message on standard input, but it won't write to
standard output. I replace # with the fd I use to write the
gpg -sb -o - --passphrase-fd #
does the right thing.
gpg -sb --passphrase-fd 0 < inputfile > outputfile
lets me simulate the circumstances of my application, and this works,
too. I first type the passphrase at the console and then I enter a
I missing something obvious?
