Perl, GPG, and --passphrase-fd
Thu Jun 7 15:35:02 2001
I saw a few postings in previous months that posed the question:
"How do I invoke decryption with a passphrase and avoid getting prompted
for a passphrase?"
Browsing through the gpg.man page I found an option of:
Read the passphrase from file descriptor n. If
you use 0 for n, the passphrase will be read
from stdin. This can only be used if only
one passphrase is supplied. Don't use this
option if you can avoid it.
That is great! - but I cannot seem to figure how to get at the file
descriptor that Perl is looking to use. Has anyone used this option?
Thanks a bunch.... this is driving me crazy.
