Question Keyboard input not on screen

How would you code so that input typed on the keyboard does not appear on the screen? (e.g. when typing in a password). Is there a shell scripting solution for this? (bash)

Search here because I know this question just came up and the solution was posted. It has something to do with ioctrl(). Also there is an old header file that contains a function that handles it. If you curious about which it is go digging in the kernel source.

Sorry about the lame answer.
