Run External Script Based on Table Entries

P: 13
I currently have a PHP script that pulls records from a table and runs PHP scripts based on the table entries, but it requires that I actually load the page in a browser and wait for it to complete. What I'd like to do is create a scheduled stored procedure that will do this for me. Unfortunately, all I can find on the net is how to run a stored procedure from PHP. What I'm looking for is how to accomplish the exact opposite. Does anyone know how to launch and external script from inside a stored procedure? If so, please direct me to any resources that may help or provide a simple example if possible. I'm not asking for a fully functional procedure. The lines necessary to launch a single script or a link to some obscure site pointing me in the right direction would suffice.

Thanks in Abundance
