I remember doing this once.  What I did was (I think) I encrypted each file in
turn and copied it to the end of the "master" file.  You can then go back and 
wipe the temp-cypher files.  When you pgp master.fil, it will extract each file
in turn.  And, yes, this is an automatic process.  Hope this helps.
