Eyck has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

When it comes to GUI toolkits, it's easy, but what is the best way to ask about password (*****) on Win32 console?
Update Looks like I missed this one - there exists Term::ReadPassword::Win32 which seems compatible with Term::ReadPassword,
use Term::ReadPassword::Win32; $pass=read_password("prompt: ");
it does not support printing "*" though
