Hi .....
Why not just write a perl (cgi-bin) script with the "user login" as the
first part of the script.. if the correct password is given then the
appropriate subroutines are invoked else "invalid passwd - go away!!" 
OR.. call a login script as 1st part of your script... if login valdi
then call another script or give validated users a menu type option.

It works, I have written a number of perl scripts using this method

Cheers, Phil
