What were you expecting and what did it do that wasn't what you wanted? I can guarantee that you need more logic than that to mask a password entry.

You have to turn terminal local echo off. This is often specific to what kind of terminal you are using. Are you using the windows command prompt?

Search the forum,I remmember typing out an entire function to get passwords while displaying *'s and supporting backspace too.
