Hi,
To read a confidential input from a user, I would like something like

var pw string
fmt.Print("Password: ")
fmt.ScanlnNoecho(&pw)

same with Scanln except it does not echo typed characters.

Thanks.

Comment 1:

you might want to take a look at go.crypto/ssh/terminal 
(http://godoc.org/code.google.com/p/go.crypto/ssh/terminal#ReadPassword)
or any terminal handling library on godoc.org (a lot of them exist).

Status changed to WontFix.
