THE .netrc FILE
The file ~/.netrc may be used to automatically login to a server
requiring authentication. The following tokens (separated by spaces,
tabs or newlines) may be used:
Identify a remote machine host which is compared with the host-
name given on the command line or as an argument to the open
command. Any subsequent tokens up to the end of file or the
next machine or default token are associated with this entry.
This is equivalent to the machine token but matches any host-
name. Only one default token may be used and it must be after
all machine tokens.
Specifies the username to use when logging in to the remote
Specifies the password to use when logging in to the remote
Any other tokens (as described in ftp(1)) are ignored.
Connects to the server myserver.example.com, opening the root
Connects to the server zope.example.com using port 8022, opening
the collection "/Users/fred/".

Individual user settings that can override cadaver defaults and
