    I'm trying to script an rsync process and I keep getting the password
    prompt... here's my "script"

    rsync -avz -e /usr/bin/ssh --password-file=/home/username/pwd.rsync
    /home/user/test/ host:/home/username/test

    And it works fine, but it prompts me for a password even though I'm
    using --password-file

    I also tried putting
    export RSYNC_PASSWORD=pwd

    but that didn't have an effect either.

    Any help?
