Decrypt it and then encrypt it again?   Huh This is a no-brainer unless I am missing something...

$ gpg -o wallet.asc -ca wallet.dat
$ gpg wallet.asc

$ gpg wallet.asc
If it would be valuable to you, could you explain what this does and what every part does?

Could you explain what you really want and what you will use it for?

gpg -ca will convert the input (wallet.dat) into a conventional symmetrically encrypted ascii text block such as this:

Code:
-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE-----

jA0EAwMCZGu2org4FqJgyVXAHqwktVpZRZhDmGTlVnscUL6bxvPjyjv6cNXzKoCy
DBcr5tH3mBTDnvwSedBdJEI586w8PuahfdbRoritDrMqgT1KAsGMusMcERQh1gpV
V6dpo+ky
=oJ2k
-----END PGP MESSAGE-----

gpg with no flag arguments will decrypt it again. In both cases you'll need to provide a symmetric key, any passphrase will do.

Probably not without a non-disclosure agreement.  I am certain that it is a truly earth-shattering idea...hung up temporarily on the challenging technical question of how to encrypt a file.

You'll see in a moment. Thank you!
