I am trying to create a password input. I am aware of
p = getpass.getpass()
print("You entered:") + p

getpass()falls back to printing a warning message to stream and reading from
sys.stdinand issuing a
So probably you just don't have a
echo free input available in your IDLE environment (e.g., you didn't start it from a shell).
