Try "ask clear password" 

ask password (w/o the word clear) will encrypt the input thereby encrypting
the contents of "it"

Hello all,

I am trying to use the "ask password" command to mask the password input
that eventually gets sent to the *nix shell. Problem is, when the user puts
in their password, "it" returns seemingly random characters instead of the
unmasked password. Any ideas?_______________________________________________
