authenticate

Use http authentication.

It's not obvious how to turn authentication off after using it, so I recommend using custom handles with authentication.

Usage
authenticate(user, password, type = "basic")
Arguments
user
user name
password
password
type
type of HTTP authentication. Should be one of the following types supported by Curl: basic, digest, digest_ie, gssnegotiate, ntlm, ntlm_vn, any. It defaults to "basic", the most common type.
See Also

Other config: add_headers; config; set_cookies; timeout; use_proxy; user_agent; verbose
