Hi All,
Does anyone know if it is possible to hide a password in a DOS window? For instance, my user inferface for my Java app is command line. Can I somehow make DOs window not display the characters as user is typing, like on Unix? Many thanks!!!

someone else asked the same question less than a week ago...
Try doing a search on the topic and see what you can find.

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
