Description
A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
The java.io.Console that was added as a fix for RFE#4050435 doesn't allow reading the keyboard input character by character. Please add this capability to the console.

JUSTIFICATION :
There simply is no way to do this in the jdk. A lot of console text applications could be written/significantly enhanced if this simple mechanism were to be provided.
