How do I download a file that needs username and password?by Zork2 (Initiate)
|on Feb 21, 2021 at 13:13 UTC||Need Help??|
Zork2 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am trying to download some JSON files from URLs of the form:https://stt.disruptorbeam.com/player?client_api=N
Where N is an integer, eghttps://stt.disruptorbeam.com/player?client_api=1
But i get sent to a login screen.
In a web browser this is fine, you just click the "Sign in with Dbid" link, then enter your username and password, after which the URLs will work.
However i have absolutely no idea how to do this in perl.
Any help would be appreciated.
