scp and no password

Is there anyway to use scp and provide a password in a script, or somthing along those lines? I am trying to do a scheduled backup transfer, and I can't find anyway of doing it besides scp, I don't want to use any r* programs. Thanks for any info!

scp uses the same authentication methods that ssh does. Check the man page for ssh. Apparently you can use $HOME/.rhosts, $HOME/.shosts, /etc/hosts.equiv, or /etc/ssh/shosts.equiv for this.
