   i have a perl script which successfully decrypt a file except when

   i'm using GnuPG::Interface. I'm puzzled of where to fix.
   the script is as below.
   any input is greatly appreciated.

First, since you're running in cron, you should make sure interactive mode
is false: $gnupg->options->interactive(0)

Second, you should use "direct" mode for your input file, since you're
reading manually from a IO::Handle() anyways.

See if cron is reporting anything going wrong, too.
