For the first part of your question you should put all the pages you wish to protect inside folders and use the .htaccess file to specify users. on my host which is running apache under Redhat I have a folder with administrative tools. Two files are used to set up the autorization for that folder they are as follows (paths changed of course):

.htaccess
AuthName Authentication
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /path/to/protected/directory/.htpasswd
<Limit GET POST>
Require valid-user
</Limit>

.htpasswd
usrname:encrypted_password

Read up on .htaccess files for more info. I believe there is a way for it to use the /etc/passwd file for authentication but am unsure of the specifics.

For the second part of your question this node http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=107095 contains a peice of code that will tell you what information you can get from the %ENV hash.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
