Yeah but do learn about using a .netrc file in your home directory and curl's -n option. .netrc can be set read only for just the owner and does a bit to protect your passwords which really ought not appear in source code.

But then I really donno haw to do that if it has to be executed by a web client coming in thru HTTP.
