This function is intended to be used as a prompter callback for krb5_get_init_creds_password() or krb5_init_creds_init() .

Writes name and banner to stdout, each followed by a newline, then writes each prompt field in the prompts array, followed by”:”, and sets the reply field of the entry to a line of input read from stdin. If the hidden flag is set for a prompt, then terminal echoing is turned off when input is read.
