decrypting input, not a file...

I finally figured out the proper syntax to decrypt a file from 
command line passing the passphrase as

echo '$passphrase' | gpg -v --batch --no-secmem-warning 
--passphrase-fd 0 --decrypt $file

However, in a particular case... I would like to decrypt a 'string' 
but don't want to necessarily write the 'string' to a file.

I know I can encrypt a 'string' passed on the command line... but how 
can I get gpg to read a varialbe instead of passing a file name?

Sorry, fairly new to scripting with bash etc...

Please CC me on reply's, I haven't subscribed to the list yet....

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.
