What is PhpDig?
PhpDig is a PHP MySQL based
Web Spider & Search Engine.



hw_identify — Authenticates the current connection using a different username.


string hw_identify(hw_link, username, password);
resource hw_link: Connection ID to Hyperwave server
string username: Hyperwave user name of the user to authenticate as
string password: Password for this user


String containing information about the login; FALSE on error


This function allows you to change the user account information for a Hyperwave server connection. If the authentication is successful, a string containing the user's object ID (user accounts are Hyperwave objects) and username, separated by a single whitespace, is returned. If the username doesn't match that of any known user, the string returned is 0x00000000 anonymous, and the connection reverts to anonymous status.


PHP 3 since 3.0.3, PHP 4


Example 504. Change the current user account

$user = 'famarco';
$pass = 'spuzz';
if (($str = hw_identify($hw_link, $user, $pass)) === FALSE) {
    echo "Could not connect as user '$user'; reason: " . hw_errormsg($hw_link) . ".\n";
    echo $str;
} else {
    echo $str;
