Or use

               This  modifies certain  other  commands to  accept
               multiple files for  processing on the command line
               or  read  from  stdin  with each  filename   on  a
               separate line.   This allows for many  files to be
               processed at  once.   --multifile may currently be
               used   along   with   --verify,   --encrypt,   and
               --decrypt.   Note that `--multifile  --verify' may
               not be  used with detached signatures.
