[erlang-questions] Hiding user input in escript
Tue Mar 19 22:04:26 CET 2013
I found this old thread from 2009 about trying to hide user input in an
escript (e.g. entering a password).
It concluded with:
> The problem seems to be that escript uses the old shell, which
> does not support any way to control the terminal.
> We'll have a look at escript for the next release and see whether
> it would be possible to have it run with the standard shell.
Does anyone know if this has been fixed. I looked through the docs and
do not find io:get_password/0, or any options for reading stdin to not
echo the characters back.
Looking forward to meeting those of you attending Erlang Factory in a
couple of days.
