This project is not complete yet. Do not use.

This is a simple program that allows you to enter a command that requires a password without leaving a record of that password in hour history file.

Instead of running a command as:

somecommand my-super-secret-password

You can instead enter:

somecommand `blindpass`

You will then be prompted twice for a password (whithout echoing to the screen). If the passwords match, the password will be passed to your command as though it had been entered from the command line. No record of this password will be kept anywhere.
