Are you sure you want to do that? The pass phrase is one of the 2 most=20
secret things you have in the whole encryption system. I would not even=20
save that into a file on my Linux box, not to think of a Windows box.
The passphrase is something you have in your biological memory or -if=20
that has occasional brake-downs (like mine) - you save it somewhere on=20
a floppy in your locker.
Sorry, I can't answer your question.
