I have no comprehension of GPG, but would the new --noread option be of any use to you? (Available from nano-2.3.3 onward.)

Hello,
is there possibility to get support for editing files encrypted by those commands?

gpg -c file -> .gpg file
gpg -ca file -> .asc file
ccrypt -e file -> .cpt file

It can be done by simple BASH script, but you need an intermediate file which can be bit insecure. nano can have some argument which will decrypt file when opening and encrypt file with the same password before saving/creating. or this feature can be enabled when nano is called with argv[0] "cnano" instead of "nano".

I think that this can be usefull for storing passwords or making personal notes, etc...

Thanks. ;o)
