You may want to use the option:


            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

You might need to compine it with --yes and --batch so that existing
files are overwritten.
