So, if somehow you managed to put the passphrase in a script, it would have
a. Encrypted so prying eyes couldn't decode it.
b. Open to prying eyes.
Assuming point a, then you would need a key to decrypt it. Ergo a
passphrase to decrypt the passphrase. Oops. Back at square 1.
Ergo, point b. But that would reveal the passphrase!
However you can automate it in a manner that the script will know the
passphrase. However, anybody else reading the script could figure it out
also. Check out --passphrase-fd

I was decrypting a file and I had to put my paraphrase in. Is there a way
to bypass this or automate the paraphrase being passed via a parameter w/out
revealing the paraphrase?
