Is there a way to invoke a script on a web server from the Windows "command line"?

Like I want to run a php script at http://www.somewhere.com/xyz/abc.php

Can I do that without using a browser? The php script DOES NOT produce an html page.

Thanks

Create a test.vbs file in c:\ that has this in it...

Set objXMLHTTP = CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
objXMLHTTP.Open "GET", "http://yahoo.com"
objXMLHTTP.Send
WScript.echo objXMLHTTP.responsetext

Then at the C:\ in the command prompt type test.vbs
