could someone tell me if the line in the script below for passing the username as clear text should be as follows. If my username is henrik and my password is celtic would the line be

user henrik celtic

Whewn I try this I am prompted for a password and even when I give the correct one it comes back with an error. I know the .netrc file is the way to go but I want to get the syntax of this command right. I have tried a few variations on this and used the man file but am still getting errors.

Any thoughts
