getPass: Masked User Input

A micro-package for reading "passwords", i.e. reading user input with masking, so that the input is not displayed as it is typed. Currently we have support for 'RStudio', the command line (every OS), and any platform where 'tcltk' is present.

Install the latest version of this package by entering the following in R:
install.packages("getPass")
