Long: basic
Help: Use HTTP Basic Authentication
See-also: proxy-basic
Protocols: HTTP
Tells curl to use HTTP Basic authentication with the remote host. This is the
default and this option is usually pointless, unless you use it to override a
previously set option that sets a different authentication method (such as
--ntlm, --digest, or --negotiate).
Used together with --user.
