Red Hat Enterprise (in its infinite wisdom) chooses not to ship 
Term::ReadKey with their perl. Is there an equivalent to the following 
that will be portable to an unmodified RHEL host:

ReadMode 'noecho';
$pass0 = ReadLine(0);
ReadMode 'normal';
chomp $pass0;
print "\n";
exit unless $pass0;

many thanks
