Here is my new command:

gpg --homedir /usr/lsd/apache-ssl/htdocs/secureDB/PGP/.gnupg --status-fd
1 --command-fd 0 --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring
--edit-key 1193 passwd 

I am don't want to type the old passphrase, and the new passphrase, but
rather have the programe write it to standard in. The programe still
hangs. Am I missing an option in my commande somewhere...? I have even
changed --command-fd to --passphrase-fd to no avail. Any ideas...?
Thanks in advance.
