HTAA_checkPassword(username,password,passwdfile)opens the password file, and checks if the username-password pair is correct. Return value is YES, if and only if they are correct. Otherwise, and also if the open fails, returns NO.
If the given password file name is NULL or an empty string, the default password file name is used (macro PASSWD_FILE).
