.htaccess by passsing with browser login. Can't Post

Is it possible to create a small program that will bypass the .htaccess pop-up window?

What I want to do is have a log-in form on the web page
where the user enters there information and this is checked for proper login in the
.htpasswd file. I know how to do that but I don't know how to make it where they never see the .htaccess pop-up window.

I only want the to have to enter there username and password once but I want it entered into a form not into the pop-up window.

If anyone knows of a way or somewhere I can get more information on this please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

 Hey Mate,

Well, the first step is to build you form and everything, get your script to read the user/pass fields, then print location to the protected directory with the user/pass information in the url. This will by pass the login promt if the user/pass is right.

So your code would look kinda like this

#read form code
verify user and pass

print "Location: $URL\n\n";

Get what I mean, just have to redirect to the url, so don't print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; unless their login is wrong.

I havn't been able to test out that url login thing since I've been too busy to setup a pass protected dir right now so I hope it works. First try to get into the protected directory by url then you'd be set.

Man, I'm beat, Nighters

Good Luck Ray,
