How to get password once from user and use that in entire MSDOS batch file.

P: 1
Hi,
I want to execute some set of Postgres routines like
psql,pg_dump,pg_restore in a single MSDos batch file. I want to prompt user only once for password and use that in entire batch file with out asking user everytime..
I used set PGPASSWORD=my_password.. but this prints password on screen.. due to security issues I dont want to use this.

Can some one please guide me is there a way to do this.

Thanks in adavance,
rao.
