When I export both public & secret key to another public & secret key
ring. I also remove the passphrase on the key. I then create a new
option file for GPGshell which points to new public & secret key rings,
then select the new option file, the above command works fine (i.e.
signs multiple files).

This would be nice because I wouldn't have to remove passphrase & create
separate key rings. The command never asked for my passphrase. When
using a pipe doesn't the program have to ask for passphrase once. I am
on Win98, so is this command compatible with Win98? If no and on Win2k
wouldn't I still have to provide passphrase at least once?

No problem but I need to get working on command line first. According to
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.
I am no programmer but do enjoy learning, so my question is what is
stdin? Is this some temporary file on Win2k or NT machine where the
passphrase is stored?
