Pg_dump : Can I specify the Password ?


I'm doing automated database dump and want to be able to specify
Username and Passowrd in my shell script for pg_dump.

When I do man pg_dump there are no options for password. There is -U
username to specify username which actually doesn't work for me, I
still get prompted for username, but there is nothing to specify
Is there anyway of going around this? I need to automate everything
and forego prompting.
Thanks in advance.
