depends on you web-server.
one solution might be to use a .htaccess file in conjunction with a .htpasswd file, then the web-server will do authentification for you and pass the authentificated username to you script.

If you want to do it by your cgi, you simple write a page with a form having a username and pw input-field, where the form's action points to your cgi.



yeah i want to do it with my cgi... but how? instructions please 0-=)
<form action="your-login.cgi" method=post>

Passwd:<input name=wassw type=password>
