I'm hoping someone can help me out once again. I have successfully implemented multiple user password protection on a directory of mine on a UNIX server (using .htaccess and .htpasswd). What I would like to know is how I can grab the username of the person when they log in and use it in other ways. Specifically, I need create a file based on the username, and possibly post a message to a private board with the username already filled in. Is this possible in Unix or would I have to implement this using Java or Perl? Thanks a bunch for reading this!
