comment passing passwords to a script
Sure. But if someone gets your private key file, he can take his time to run various softwares on that to break it. But getting your password is not like that and is generally harder to hack. So I am not sure how safe is ssh-agent. If someone breaks your key, would he need to use your own machine too to connect to the remote host, or can connect from any station?

The cat solutions works well; I printed a file this way yesterday. Apparently it works for many file types too. I did not know about MasterControl, I have to check it out. Thanks a lot for pointing it out.
