asynchronious call to another php page from php
Posted on 2007-11-25
I have one PHP page which reads from a database, does some mussing about and formatting, and then outputs some html based on what it read.
I have a second php page which I'd really like to "call" this first php page and get a hold of the HTML it would have outputted. Preferably I'd like to pass in HTTP POST fields, although I could work around that.
This is sort-of like the server-side equivalent of ajax. Query another page and get the output of it somehow. Both php files are mine, on the same server, but I don't want to use include(), I want to keep the two operations seperate.
Is this possible to do in php?
