in the past I have been able to access websites with data directly. For
example the following code works nicely
But what happens if I need a username and password (a different site)?
How do I do that? Or is it not possible to this in R?
I tried something like this
mydata.frame <- read.table("myusr:mypswd at www.mydata.com/adir/afile.txt")
but it did not work.
I'd appreciate any hints.
My platform is Win32 (and I am actually running R 2.3.1, but I guess
(hope!) this is not the reason. At least I checked the NEWS file whether
any changes appeared since 2.3.1 which could affect this behavior).
