[erlang-questions] Hiding user input in escript
Tue Mar 19 23:17:06 CET 2013
I see io:get_password() in my io module in R15B03, but it doesn't appear to
work with escript because it uses the old 'user' rather than 'group' which
doesn't understand the get_password io request. Haven't looked at R16B yet.
