in reply to Verify WordPress user password via Perl

The WordPress Codex function you want is wp_login_form. What you could do is create a simple one-off PHP file that includes the WordPress API file (wp-blog-header.php) and calls the function. Set the redirect URL of the wp_login_form function to be your Perl code that provides files. Or perhaps create some mishmash where your Perl code is doing the interface generation and you use something like LWP::Simple to scrape the information into a Perl string.

To be honest, I would create a custom script completely in PHP to do what you're trying to do. You could perhaps delve into the WordPress API to create a plugin that allows users to see the files you're trying to deliver. Perl, for all its power, is sometimes not the right tool for the job.

    Maybe this is the best solution. I'm going to try this as well. Thanks.
      Actually, in this way I believe I cannot prevent that anyone who knows the redirect link can get the files, while I want to deliver them only to WP users that have a specific permission set in WP. Or am I wrong ?
