the key as well, i.e. "-kMyPassword", if the key is not given then you will be
prompted within ME when the file is loaded.
Note that -k MyPassword does not work, it will assume MyPassword is the
crypted file. Also the passing of the key is not supported by the
client-server and only -b or -c is supported by the client-server, not both.
This will be in the next release, coming soon I hope.
