Don't do this. Displaying a series of *'s to mask the password is not encryption. MATLAB is still saving the password in an unencrypted state despite what is shown on the screen. All the *'s are doing is hiding a security flaw.

The FileExchange is a good start point, when you look for solutions of standard problems.
