No problem. GPGME does it this way. The trick is the option
--enable-special-filenames and to pass the fd in this format "-&N".
gpg --enable-special-filenames --verify --batch -&5 -&6
Assuming you have them in fds 5 and 6.
Using GPGME is of course easier because it has this secret knowledge ;-)
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
