NAME
       GnuPG::Tie::Encrypt - Tied filehandle interface to encryption with the
       GNU Privacy Guard.

       GnuPG::Tie::Decrypt - Tied filehandle interface to decryption with the
       GNU Privacy Guard.

SYNOPSIS
	   use GnuPG::Tie::Encrypt;
	   use GnuPG::Tie::Decrypt;

	   tie *CIPHER,	'GnuPG::Tie::Encrypt', armor =>	1, recipient =>	'User';
	   print CIPHER	<<EOF;
       This is a secret
       EOF
	   local $/ = undef;
	   my $ciphertext = <CIPHER>;
	   close CIPHER;
	   untie *CIPHER;

	   tie *PLAINTEXT, 'GnuPG::Tie::Decrypt', passphrase =>	'secret';
	   print PLAINTEXT $ciphertext;
	   my $plaintext = <PLAINTEXT>;

	   # $plaintext	should now contains 'This is a secret'
	   close PLAINTEXT;
	   untie *PLAINTEXT;

DESCRIPTION
       GnuPG::Tie::Encrypt and GnuPG::Tie::Decrypt provides a tied  file
       handle interface	to encryption/decryption facilities of the GNU Privacy
       guard.

       With GnuPG::Tie::Encrypt	everyting you write to the file	handle will be
       encrypted. You can read the ciphertext from the same file handle.

       With GnuPG::Tie::Decrypt	you may	read the plaintext equivalent of a
       ciphertext. This	is one can have	been written to	file handle.

       All options given to the	tie constructor	will be	passed on to the
       underlying GnuPG	object.	You can	use a mix of options to	output
       directly	to a file or to	read directly from a file, only	remember than
       once you	start reading from the file handle you can't write to it
       anymore.
