           Summary: input task should hide password entries
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.2
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: richard.cross@uk.wanadoo.com


Could there be an extra property to the input task that masks the entries as you
type them (with asterisks for example)?

My ant script checks files outt of StarTeam before a build, so I need the following:
<input message="StarTeam login: " addproperty="st.user"/>
<input message="StarTeam password: " addproperty="st.password"/>

However when you run this:

init:
    [input] StarTeam login:
rcross
    [input] StarTeam password:
mypasswordforalltosee

which is extremely insecure if someone happens to be standing behind you.
