Sending cookies with python. When download with python

I need to download files off a password protected website. So if I try
to download files off the site with python I will be blocked. Is there
anyway to send cookies with python. So I will be authenticated.

Yes. I haven't done it but I know you should be looking at urllib2 and
cookielib. I'm sure you can find some examples online. Dive Into
Python (google it) has some examples that may help you get started
with more general purpose use of urllib2.
