Post: RE: Linux Portability

I did a google search on "download libstdc++.so.5" and got a bunch of stuff on rpm packages which wouldn't have done me much good. So, my point is that anything that could be done with murgalua packag...

Does anyone know how to prompt a user for input from a console application? Ideally, it would be able to mask the input for a password type field.
