Intercept login process

I begin to discover phpBB source code.

What I want to do :

After a successfull user login, and before session (or other internal variable) setting up the user is successfully authentified, I want to call a php script (which, based on its results, may affect theses variables saying user is or not logged).

Can you make me clear about which source code file, function, variable, may I modify? I don't know about phpbb software architecture and there are a lot of files...

Best regards.

It is not recommended that you edit core code but that you use extensions, which as you have posted in the Extension Writers Discussion form is what I am guessing that you are trying to do.

I would suggest that you start by looking at the core.login_box_redirect event - or possibly one of the other events in that function.
