in reply to http client

perldoc lwpcook says:
ACCESS TO PROTECTED DOCUMENTS Documents protected by basic authorization can easily be accessed like this: use LWP::UserAgent; $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; $req = HTTP::Request->new(GET => ' +/'); $req->authorization_basic('aas', 'mypassword'); print $ua->request($req)->as_string; The other alternative is to provide a subclass of LWP::UserAgent that overrides the get_basic_credentials() method. Study the lwp-request program for an example of this.
