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, any. It defaults to "basic", the most common type.

See Also

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