Well it depends on what Shell you like to use. How do you want to add the directories?

int the end you need something like

#!/usr/bin/zsh

source_directory="/usr/local/tmp"
target_directory="/tmp"
source_file="$1"

gpg --output "$target_directory/$source_file.gpg" --encrypt -r recipient $source_file  

Open in new window


It's up to you to improve on the user interface. Printing help etc. But this should give you an idea.
