Getting a password from stdin
- Vim 6.1.353
I want to shell out and execute a command which connects to a database.
According to the postgres psql source there is no command line parameter
for password (which is pretty silly...).
There is a simple_prompt(...) function, that reads the password. At
first it tries to open the "/dev/tty" file, and reads the things typed
on the terminal (eg. password). If the file is not found it reads the
password from stdin. I don't know how could I write the password into
/dev/tty from vim while psql is waiting for my input.
