Keyboard processing
Message ID:
Hi all,

Is it possible to process keyboard entries, character
by character, without displaying content
(e.g. for password fields),
using only core ActivePerl 5.8.0 build 804
for Windows 2000 Professional SP 3.
(no additional CPAN modules like Term/ReakKey,
no 'use' statement).
I ask for a simple loop example to do the task above
(if it is possible).
In C it is (relatively) easy to do.
What about Perl?

Thanks, and have a good weekend.
