Punto has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Probably not a perl question, but, is there any way to get (on a perl script) the username and password used for the apache authentication? for ex., the user calls:

http://user:password@www.domain.com/script.pl

How do I get "username" and "password"? I guess it's on one of the ENV{'HTTP_something'} variables..

Thanks..
