Description

adding of the above would be great, as samba uses it and probably also some other ports. getpass() works of course, but we would need some ifdef less.

  • Milestone changed from libc-0.6.4 to libc-0.7
  • Summary changed from getpassphrase() to getpass()

If someone drops me a patch + testcase this will be considered for 0.6.x release, without it's not going to make it.

according to http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/816-5168/getpassphrase-3c?l=en&n=1&a=view getpass() and getpassphrase() are the same, except getpassphrase() has a value of 257. so i guess a
#define getpassphrase getpass
could be enough.
