Hello. Do any of you know of a portable way to safely edit encrypted text
files transparently. Like 'cat foo.gpg | gpg -v -d | vim - |
gpg -v -c --output foo.gpg'... except that vim doesn't write to stdout, and
vim creates clear text .swap files.
With either openssl or gnupg, piped to an editor which doesn't create swap
files, and prints to stdout. Portable in that it's possible to decrypt the
file on a foreign system (bsd/windows), if needed, and without root.
