Hi
I am using gnuPG software for encryption and decryption of files on UNIX o/s. From the unix shell script, I wanted to decrypt file using gnuPG software. Script is going in wait mode till I enter passphrase for decryption. How could I pass passphrase to shell script so that file will be decrypted in automatic environment.

Please suggest.

Regards
Kedar
