protected file access by CGI script

How would one 'go to' a stack that lives in a .htpasswd protected directory?

On a web server, I have a CGI script that wants to use a stack that's in 
a protected directory.

When I try the URL form of 'go' as follows, I get a result of 'no such 
   go inv stack url 
   go inv stack url 
   go inv stack url 

When I try going to it by filepath without user/pass as follows, I get hung:
   go inv stack "/home/username/"

Any ideas how I can get it to work? I thought about altering the 
.htaccess file but I'm not sure what to tell it to allow, nor if that 
would do the job.

Thanks for all responses.
