    I have a site that uses basic authentication (.htacess stuff)

    I want to write a perl script that automatically logs a user in
    without the popup stuff

    I was going to do print location
    http://user:/secretstuff/

    But MSFT took that away from us 2 months ago. ARGH.

    Any clues?

    I do that all the time with LWP::Simple.

    Are we supposed to know what MSFT is?

    What is MSFT?
