I writing a applescript studio app that is bringing together data and charts from several websites and displaying it all in one window. The data is easy enough because I am getting it from Yahoo using URL Access Scripting. The problem is I am downloading the charts from a website that has a username/password front page (I do pay a subscription). When I using URL Access to download the charts ( a .png file, if that matters), the file is simply a graphic telling me to log on to the site to view the chart.
Basically, the question is… Can URL Access scripting handle this and how? Or does cURL (with which I have little experience) have the ability?
