How to hide password

Hi All,
I would like to get the passwordf from the user,
I need to hide the password , replace it with '*' or not type user input,
I don't want to use a package such as 'ReadKey' or any other
How can I get the password and hide it?

Thanks,
Ronen

Hello Ronen,

Look into the following cpan module:
cpan Term::InKey

Even if you don't want to use a package, you can still download the module and look at it's source to determine a way that you could code it all yourself.

hi ketanm,

Maybe more than a bit too late a reply for you, but you can use the Term::ReadKey module for this. Here is how:

use strict;
use warnings;
use Term::ReadKey;

ReadMode = 'noecho';
my $password = <>;
