Sure, just do something like this:
gpg --batch -r (recipient) --output (name-for-encrypted-file) --encrypt (file-to-encrypt)
However, this assumes that the recipient is trusted by you. If not,
then you also need to add "--trust-model always" to override that.
This also assumes that name-for-encrypted-file doesn't exist. GPG
won't overwrite it if it exists. To force GPG to overwrite the
existing file, add "--yes".
