Need PHP and XML DOM equivalents for some ASP code

Hi

I need to interface to an online payment gateway via XML. The gateway company provides sample code to do this, but in ASP, not PHP. Here is the link to this code:  http://www.concordefsnet.com/Developers/XmlASPClassic.asp.
I need the equivalent code in PHP. I tried using the ASP2PHP.exe converter which gave me something I can't really use. So the question is, looking at the ASP code in the link above, is it possible to do the same thing in PHP?

Thanks

You could look at a php function called curl which allows you to interface with an external form script, or you could look at sending the results using XAjax (a DOM xml set of classes) at:  www.xajaxproject.org.

Hope this helps.

I am heard about curl. So looking at the ASP code in the link I posted: Could I create an XML request and send it via https using curl, as long as I get the format right? Would that accomplish the same thing?

Although I haven't personally used Curl myself, yes, you could create a request and send it to the asp script.  I'm sure another expert here who's used Curl could assist you on that.
