Hi All, At this moment I have my script asking for a password without the echo.

use strict; use warnings; use diagnostics; use lib '/perlmod/lib/'; use lib '/perlmod/arch/'; use lib '/tools/perl/lib/'; use lib '/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/'; use lib '/tools/perl/arch/'; use Expect; use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel; use MIME::Lite; use File::Grep qw( fgrep fmap fdo ); use Time::Local; use Net::SNMP; use Term::ANSIColor; print "login password: "; system "stty -echo"; $to_be_usered = <STDIN>; chomp $to_be_usered; system "stty echo";

What I would like to achive is that any character entered is echo-ed back to the terminal as a star character getting *******. I have tried 4 options of which none were working. Any one an idea? Regards, Frits
