How to use gpg-agent



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1


I just started using gpg2 and saw that the gpg-agent needed to be run. I added use-agent to my gpg.conf and also added

#! /bin/bash
eval "$(gpg-agent --daemon)"

to ~/.kde/AutoStart and it seems to work fine. What I don't understand is the whole concept of caching passphrases.

1. How do I control how long a passphrase is cached before it decides it wants me to be re-asked?

2. Can I preload a passphrase when I log in? I know all about the security issues; I just want to know how to do it.

TIA
