in thread Mediawiki::API with Basic Authentication

Unnecessarily ambiguous to me, and probably force a hash in credentials that could be different that the program expects. Are we sure that "user" is the key for "password"? ( or maybe the "fourth element in the list credentials" is the key for password? and "user" is the value for "the third element in the list credentials", or maybe the third element in the list has "password" as username? )

I'm not saying that this is how the module works internally, I don't know, but taking a look to the source in order to discard or confirm this could help. After the question it seems to me that credentials are not parsing accurately for any reason, so OP probably want to change this fat comma and try again.

    You're an idiot

      Probably, but this fact is unrelated with the question... are we closer to the answer now that before your intervention?

      Of course I'm open to new ideas about why this code in particular is not working

        But it is directly related to your suggestions/answers/rambling

        are we closer to the answer now that before your intervention?

        No, the answer is as it was before, use http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?MediaWiki::API#MediaWiki::API-%3Elogin%28_$query_hashref_%29

        Of course I'm open to new ideas about why this code in particular is not working

        Maybe its because it is a fragment and it does nothing, maybe its because the credentials are wrong, maybe .... the error message says the credentials are wrong, so maybe the credentials are wrong
