Re: [PHP] Calling a program

you can include the p7a.php in your script or you can shell_exec(p7a.php)

$script_result = shell_exec('p7a.php');

There is a lot of useful information here once you get past the snide comments at the top.

Dear List -

Can you not call a PHP script from a form -- action = 'program.php'? In my hands it does not work...

I have tried the following

include program.php;

later in the program ...


echo "<input type='hidden' name='next_step' value='step14' />";


switch ( $_POST['next_step'] )

    case 'step14':
    }                                }

} //end Switch

The result of this is that program.php runs at the start of the script, and step14 is never called.

I am totally confused.

If you need more details, please specify.
