hi, r developers, I am now working on a R function/package to handling online request with username and token/password.

For security reasons, it's not so safe to store the username & token in persistent variables, since they'll be saved to disk when users save their workspace. Is there a secure way in R to handle the online password management? I have searched it online but didn't find any good suggestions. So I am trying my luck on this mail list.

Regards

Ni
