I've tried the script, but it just seem to ignore the config file.

DB:authentication                       # the database to connect to
HOST:localhost          # which host it resides on
TABLE:news              # the table to query against
User:authentication     # who to connect as
Pass:xyz            # pass for above

usercol:username        # column which containts the username
passcol:password        # column which includes unix crypt style password

That's my config file. But the script always tries to connect as user 
news at localhost using no password. I've modified the path to the correct 
location of the config file in my script.
