How can I use some program like Delphi or Visual C++ to get information from php file with command line. Exam:

a.php
<?php
$a=12;
echo '<html>';
echo $a;
echo '</html>'
?>

When I run the command c:\php\php.exe c:\test\a.php , it show out the command line :

<html>
12
</html>

How can I get that information from other program.

This doesn't have anything to do with PHP, but i'll reply anyway. You have to actually "run" your php script, exactly the same way when you do c:\php\php.exe c:\test\a.php.

See this:

On delphi,
shellexecute(handle,'Open',pchar('C:\PHP\php.exe'),pchar('C:\www\test.php >result.txt),'',0);


The results will be written to result.txt file but with headers. You can fix this problem by deleting some lines from file. And then open programmaticaly on delphi result.txt.

I think that the >filename command can only be used in msdos or nc. I have try your function but it doesn't work. But anyway, you are right. I use that command instead:

shellexecute(handle,'Open',pchar('command'),pchar('/C 'C:\PHP\php.exe C:\www\test.php >result.txt),'',1);

It will use command (msdos) and excute php.exe.
