Summary: Asking the user for a password

This module lets you ask the user for a password in the traditional way, from the keyboard, without echoing.
This is not intended for use over the web; user authentication over the web is another matter entirely.
Also, this module should generally be used in conjunction with Perl's crypt() function, sold separately.
The read_password function prompts for input, reads a line of text from the keyboard, then returns that line to the caller.
The line of text doesn't include the newline character, so there's no need to use chomp.

Current maintainer: Vitaly Kuznetsov
