How to turn off characters echoed to the screen from keyboard input
Posted on 2003-10-30
I'm writing a console application that requires the user to enter a password and I would like the program to not echo the input from the keyboard while they enter the password or, if possible, to echo a placeholder like a *.
So I guess like to learn either how to turn off character echo, or how to redirect the standard output.
If it's any help, it's going to be a windows program compiled on MSVC++ 6.0
