I want to ask user for the passphrase only once, save it in a variable, and
then enter an infinite loop of asking user what to do and then do it.
Otherwise the passphase would have to be given each time that user wants to
do something.

Thanks. It works:

I had to some kind of tricks because `read` is an internal bash command,
so this does not work: `rlwrap read command`. I had to do `command=$(rlwrap
where `read.sh` is just: `read line; echo $line`.

I also tried something like this: `rlwrap bash -c 'read command' `
but then I couldn't get the value of $command.
Can you think of any other way, more simple than the trick above?
