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.

Subject: Fw: encrypting and signing a file without a passphrase
I am using version 1.2.1. Can someone help me with the following:
I would like to send encrpyt and sign a file without having to enter a
passphrase each time. I could not find a way to pass the passphrase as an
argument to GPG. In the FAQ, there was some mention (article 4.14) about
batch process and removing the passphrase using --edit. I tried that, but
when I entered:
gpg --edit foo
I had no means of editing foo.
Any ideas how I can encrpyt and sign a file without having to enter my
