Login Prompt - how to?
Can anyone tell me how I can login to a web page using a login prompt?
or please point me to a gem or what to study in order to be able to do
I have used Watir until now for normal login pages, but it doesn't seem
to be able to handle prompts.

That looks like standard HTTP authentication (Basic/Digest).
You will need a regular HTTP client library in order to supply credentials,
like Httparty, HttpClient, Mechanize etc.
You might have better luck with Celerity ( a JRuby implementation of Watir,
that uses a pure java Http Client, instead of automating a browser) - the
might expose methods for dealing with HTTP auth instead of form
There are a LOT of Ruby HTTP libraries out there - you might have to do a
bit of homework
on them and their feature sets.
Also double check the Watir site. Popups of all kinds are a real annoyance
there, and they
have developed a couple of interesting workarounds. They might also
that I haven't mentioned here.
