At this moment I have my script asking for a password without the echo.
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 File::Grep qw( fgrep fmap fdo );
print "login password: ";
system "stty -echo";
$to_be_usered = <STDIN>;
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,
