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?

Re: Python one

Well, in some languages (*ahem* ruby, perl.. where there are LJ libraries) you can do that... sorta ;)

I apologize, your previous comment read (to me) like the "you're dumb" option and I jumped to conclusions. Sorry about that.

I know quite a few people who can scrape by in bash but don't know other languages, so while I agree with you that it would be easier elsewhere, it's interesting to see what people can do in *sh.
