in reply to Changing stty echo to star characters

I don't believe the stty command has an option for this. You would need to read each character individually and echo back an asterisk accordingly. Term::Readkey makes this easy but you still need to handle edge cases like the backspace or control characters. Or you could just use IO::Prompt.
