Hello, I need to do a few bash/gawk scripts to have some basic automation for day-to-day tasks. Some of them require a login.

Is there a way to have a simple authentication, without having to mimic the behavior of the browser?

Basically, no. The entire protocol suite is over HTTP, so one way or the other you're going to need to pretend to be a browser.

You might consider writing a small glue script in something else that you can use to handle the protocol stuff, and then just call it from your bash/gawk scripts.
