Translating Curl or a Wget instruction to php code

Hello,
I received two  urls to receive à .csv file.
I need to do the php code to insert the procedure in a webpage to download a .csv file

Please find the url :
Wget :
wget 'http://LOGIN:PASSWORD@export.mywebsiteurl.be/redirect.jsp?exportFormat=CSV&exportEncoding=utf-8&compressed=1&category=-1'
or
curl -L -u LOGIN:PASSWORD -O 'http://mywebsiteurl.be/redirect.jsp?exportFormat=CSV&exportEncoding=utf-8&compressed=1&category=-1'

Could you help me to make a simple php code.

Regards

Eddie, good suggestion!  It wasn't clear to me whether the URL would work as written, and without any way to test we're at a bit of a loss.

Hi Ray, Hi Eddie,

Thank you for your replies.
I can send you the real url, the login and the password in a private message to test.
I need just to avoid sending that kind of informations in public.

Let me know is it ok for you Ray.
Regards
Yes, it is OK, and I'll be glad to help. You can find my email address in my profile.

I didn't get any message from you.  Please tell us: How did you handle the login and password?  Thanks!
I think you should have split the point more towards Ray's answer...Ray, I think they can be reassigned, correct?
@Eddie: thanks.  Points can be reassigned, but I have plenty of points and don't worry about that stuff any more.  

However I would very much like to see the Author's solution with regard to the credentials!  It seems like something worth adding to my teaching library.

Hi Ray,

I just sent to you an email because i am traveling right now.
May i ask you how to add your solution in your teaching library as you asked  ?
Regards,
Olivier
I keep a teaching library of examples on my own server.  These are often the responses to common questions here at E-E and in classes I teach about PHP.  

The way to present the authentication credentials for the site -- That's what I'm trying to discern.  Did you use CURLOPT_USERPWD or LOGIN:PASSWORD in the URL?  Did either or both work?  Just trying to keep learning :-)

Thanks and regards,
Ray
