Term::ReadLine is what you're looking for.

update: sorry, my fault, Term::ReadKey does what you want. I've even used it but confused it with Term::ReadLine. I'm lucky I didn't get downvoted for this post, although that would have been justified. So don't bother using ReadLine, use ReadKey!

      How are you expected to develop programs that require passwords but yet you don't have authority enough in your own home directory to install the tools you need to program with? Seems really silly IMO.
