ebook-convert: pass username and password

Hi,

I can't find in the documentation how to pass my username and password to this command line:

ebook-convert "The Economist".recipe economist.epub

The Economist website is now limited to subscribers (which I am), from calibre's changelog I can see that the "The Economist" recipe has been updated - now I would like to pass my credentials. Can someone help?

Thanks a milion,
Daniel

That works, thank you very much!

Just to document it for everyone else who might run into a problem when running ebook-convert with a recipe from the command line:

input (i.e. recipe) first, output second, then the options

ebook-convert "The Economist".recipe economist.epub --username "xxxxxxxxxxxxx" --password "xxxxxxxxxx"

Have a great day,
Daniel
