Disabling echo on the terminal!
echo -n Enter your password
stty -echo
read password
stty echo

This shell scripts asks for the password.
When the user types it, it will not be echoed on the screen. How to implement the same using C Language Library Functions.

See man page for termios

If ECHO is set input characters are echoed back to the terminal. If ECHO is not set, input characters are not echoed.
