Passing Username and Password via PHP into curl - Suggestions

Hi,

I have been working on a script that iterates through a CSV file creating
some data that is uploaded to a webservices implementation. The script
successfully uploads. the command line for the curl in my PHP script is as
follows:

passthru ('curl -k -u *username*:*password* -F
"upload=</home/omniupdate/public_html/brcctv/25live_imports/Library;type=text/xml"
https://webservices.collegenet.com/r25ws/wrd/blueridge/run/events.xml');

The curl works if I physically enter my username and password in the
location. However, if I try to pass the values of variables to the curl as
follows:

passthru ('curl -k -u $username.":".$password -F
"upload=</home/omniupdate/public_html/brcctv/25live_imports/Library;type=text/xml"
https://webservices.collegenet.com/r25ws/wrd/blueridge/run/events.xml');

The curl command fails to successfully pass the authorization to the
webservice.

I have verified that the $username and $password variables are populated
with the correct values. Any ideas how I could get this to work?

Thanks,
Keith
