how to kinit without entering password from keyboard?

Is it posible to pass the password in the command line (not from a 
keyboard). I'm making a perl script, it should call the "system" 
function to execute the command to authenticate a principal. I tried 
"echo my_passsword | kinit -f my_principal" and "kinit -f my_principal < 
my_password_in_a_file.txt", they dont work.
