nbnLogin(username = NULL, password = NULL, verbose = FALSE)



optional character giving username


optional character giving password


logical, if TRUE successful logins are reported via console


This function is used within the getOccurrences function and should not normally need to be used by users. It automatically handles cookies and only prompts users for username and password if no cookies exist. The facility to provide a username and password has been added for people who may have issues with cookies or perhaps share an account with a number of others, however hardcoding usernames and passwords has obvious security issues.
