    how to enter a value using php ?

    I need to ask a value to visitor with a prompt for example

    echo "enter a value to continue..."

    after this echo the script should prompt and wait for a value followed by enter.

    If the visitor enter the value then I execute the next php code .

    This php script should work from linux command line
    It should work like this


    Please enter a password ... (prompt)


    The user enter a password , click enter , and the script continue the execution.


    With perl it's possible with following way

    print "What password ? ";
    $pass = <STDIN>;

    is there some way to do that with php ?
    Thank you

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    function getstdin ($str){
        echo 
    $str;
        
    $fp fopen("php://stdin","r");
        
    $line fgets($fp,255);
        return 
    trim($line);
    }

    $pass1 getstdin("Please enter a password:");
    $pass2 getstdin("Please confirm password:");

    if(
    $pass2==$pass1){
        echo 
    "\nPassword's accepted";
    }else{
        echo 
    "Your passwords do not match";
    }
    ?>

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)
