For requirement (2) you can get the submitted password user name from $ENV{REMOTE_USER}. Presumably if he got this far then this user is properly logged on, so you'd just check whether this particular user has delete rights. Or if you want him to submit his authentication a second time for security, you can get him to do that into a CGI form and then check validity using Apache::Htpasswd.

edit 26/9/02 spartacus9 is quite right, and tactful to call it a 'minor' point - it is of course the user name you get and not the password - my bad. George Sherston

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
