No there is no way to do this.
The best suggestion for all automated systems is not to use a
passphrase. If you really want a passphrase and you require full
control over it you have three choices:
- Write your own pinentry and send CANCEL back until the desired
passphrase is requested. Then send the right passphrase.
- Write a simple pinentry to always send a CANCEL back (GnuPG 2.1 will
have an option to emulate this). The use gpg-preset-passphrase to
seed gpg-agent with the desired passphrase.
- Use --status-fd/--command-fd. These options allow you to
pass a passphrase to gpg entirely under script control. They work
even with GnuPG 1.4.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
