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.
