i have just tried something in perl

print "login: ";
$login = <STDIN>;

print "\npassword: ";
$password = <STDIN>;

print "Username=$login\n";
print "Password=$password\n";

And it doesnt work, anyone know how i can get more than one line?

Why do you need to get more than one line?

$login = &lt;STDIN&gt;;
$password = &lt;STDIN&gt;;

should each read one line from the keyboard. Is that what you are tying to do?
