understanding what gnugp can do

Hello Graham,

actually keymanagement is a non-issue for me, as I just need to decrypt orders
from my online-store. So there are only 2 parties involved, the store and the
receiving PC.

All: When decrypting via the command-shell, is there a way how to avoid being
prompted for the passphrase? (it's insecure, I know, but I want to batch it)


I will try those out (probably not now, as I'm at work)
