Hi

I've read this of course,

http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod...ssphrasedialog

but I still think it's likely has to be easier than
this - is there really not a builtin prompt for w32?
even if apache is started from the command line and
not as a service? I know I can write a small minimum
line program to "exec" and ask for the passphrase from
stdin - but really, I doubt I'm the first person to
ask this for the win32 platform...

thanks
b
