Netrc

This library reads and writes .netrc files.

API

Read a netrc file:

n = Netrc.read("sample.netrc")

If the file doesn't exist, Netrc.read will return an empty object.

Read the user's default netrc file ($HOME/.netrc on Unix; %HOME%\_netrc on Windows):

n = Netrc.read

Look up a username and password:

user, pass = n["example.com"]

Write a username and password:

n["example.com"] = user, newpass
n.save

If you make an entry that wasn't there before, it will be appended to the end of the file. Sometimes people want to include a comment explaining that the entry was added automatically. You can do it like this:

n.new_item_prefix = "# This entry was added automatically\n"
n["example.com"] = user, newpass
n.save

Have fun!
