Authentication using AppleScript
Authored by: Fenton on Oct 08, '08 01:23:54PM

Just an addendum. In AppleScript you can bring up the authentication dialog with the phrase:

do shell script "command " with administrator privileges

You can also include your password, to avoid the dialog, using the syntax:

do shell script "command " password YourPassword with administrator privileges

Though it would be kind of a security risk having such a file laying around.
