how does one redirect the input for a terminal ?

hi all,

I'm trying to compress with passwords a couple of hundred files using
"zip" (I have to use this, as some of the compressed files will go to
windoze users), but "zip" only seems to take the password from a
terminal, so I can't use the "<" redirector of bash. Is there a way of
fooling it, so it reads from a file, believing it to be a terminal ?
Or any other way round ?

cheers to all and thanks for any help!
