Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat AS 3 FCS
char *getpass( const char * prompt );
This function is obsolete. Do not use it.
From the man page, getpass() is an obsolete function and can NOT be
used, what is its equivalent function available on RHAS3? If there is
no equivalent, can we still use getpass()?
This function was marked LEGACY since it provides no functionality which a user could not easily implement, and its name
It has been removed in XPG6.
