I'm using pianobar for listening to Pandora from my terminal. On each launch it asks for an email & password. I'd like to pass this information automatically when I launch pianobar, so I don't have to type it in each time.

This will allow me to create a small shell script that loads pianobar with the username and password already pre-filled.


> pianobar "you@example.com" "password"

How can I accomplishing this?

You could use Expect, which allows you to set responses to interactive command-line programs.
