I'm calling php pages using the system command.

I. E. System (mypage.php)

How do I send parameters like get or post?
 To save code. .. I'm going to call the same page multiple times and use the parameters to tell the script what I want.

.Thanks

GET and POST are 'methods' used in the HTTP protocol that is used to talk to web servers and are not available on the command line.  The article linked above shows how to convert parameters to command line parameters.  If the data is large, you should just save it to a file that the PHP program can read to get the information.

ok...
here's the problem.

I need a switch.

I have 23 php files I am calling from a cron.
it needs a "yes/no" parameter to dictacte whether or not to do something.

I have a master php file that calls the other three using the system() command.
I need to pass "yes" or "no" via some form of parameterization to perform my
command on the fly.

Any ideas?
Thanks.
Evan

This page shows what to do: http://www.php.net/manual/en/features.commandline.usage.php  You probably ought to read the entire section on command line usage at least once.
