#!/usr/bin/ksh

# use \c to suppress the default newline
echo "Enter userid: \c"
read USERID

# use \c to suppress the default newline
echo "Enter password: \c"

# set alt character set to obscure the password
tput smacs
read PASSWORD

# reset to standard character set
tput rmacs
echo ${USERID}:${PASSWORD} >> output.file


It's pretty basic but it'll do the job, if I understand your requirements correctly. You could always loop it until you select 'q' to quit or the like, depending on how sophisticated you want to make it.
