Hey all. I'm looking to create a php page which submits a form on another website then parses through the resulting page. I looking for something similar to fopen() but in which I can submit form fields. Is this possible?

Sorry if my explanation is a bit confusing, I'm finding it pretty difficult to figure out an easy way of explaining it.

Thanks in advance for any help recieved.

You can use curl to do this if available on your server. You can find all info here:
