Running Shell Command #115

Is it possible to run a shell command. I am using casperjs to scrape certain web sites. As part of scraping I am taking secret token from the user through stdin. I would like to hide the echo while user enters the token. For this I need to run a system shell command.

Thanks for the wonderful library. That made my work very easy.

Edit: PhantomJS related issue

I honestly have no idea how I could achieve that. Is it already possible using plain phantomjs?

I searched on phantomjs forums. I did see a mention of system module under development. However, I did not see mention of this functionality. Just wanted to check if anyone here has any idea. I have posed the same question in phantomjs forum.

Thanks. I'm not closing the issue as I'll probably implement the feature when it will be available in PhantomJS.

Do you know if it is possible now with phantomjs?
