cpython-withatomic / Lib / getpass.py

The 2.7 branch has multiple heads

"""Utilities to get a password and/or the current user name.

getpass(prompt[, stream]) - Prompt for a password, with echo turned off.
getuser() - Get the user name from the environment or password database.

GetPassWarning - This UserWarning is issued when getpass() cannot prevent
                 echoing of the password contents while reading.

On Windows, the msvcrt module will be used.
On the Mac EasyDialogs.AskPassword is used, if available.
