in reply to Drop-In Password Dialog?

Any time you call a Tk script for example, your original script will continue to run after the MainLoop is destroyed. So you can just make your own little password popup like this:

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Tk; my $mw = new MainWindow(); my $password = ''; my $entry = $mw->Entry( -show=>'*', -relief=>'ridge', -textvariable=>\$password )->pack; $entry->bind('<Return>',[\&somesub]); $entry->focus; # when the MainLoop is destroyed, the calling script can continue MainLoop; sub somesub { $password = $entry->get; print "password ->$password\n"; $mw->destroy; } print "you can continue on here\n"; <>; #wait for keypress to exit;

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.

    zentara, thanks again for this useful solution. I modified it slightly to also get a username, and it works great!
