/* sendToHost
* ~~~~~~~~~~
* Params:
* $host - Just the hostname. No http:// or
/path/to/file.html portions
* $method - get or post, case-insensitive
* $path - The /path/to/file.html part
* $data - The query string, without initial question mark
* $useragent - If true, 'MSIE' will be sent as
the User-Agent (optional)
*
* Examples:
* sendToHost('www.google.com','get','/search','q=php_imlib');
* sendToHost('www.example.com','post','/some_script.cgi',
* 'param=First+Param&second=Second+param');
*/

function SendToHost($host,$method,$path,$data,$useragent=0)
{
// Supply a default method of GET if the one passed was empty
if (empty($method))
$method = 'GET';
$method = strtoupper($method);
$fp = fsockopen($host,80);
if ($method == 'GET')
$path .= '?' . $data;
fputs($fp, "$method $path HTTP/1.1\n");
fputs($fp, "Host: $host\n");
fputs($fp, "Content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\n");
fputs($fp, "Content-length: " . strlen($data) . "\n");
if ($useragent)
fputs($fp, "User-Agent: MSIE\n");
fputs($fp, "Connection: close\n\n");
if ($method == 'POST')
fputs($fp, $data);

while (!feof($fp))

fclose($fp);
return $buf;

You simply can't, because PHP is rendered on the server and sends the result
back to the browser. All interaction, like submitting a form, should be
handled by the client (by pressing a button or by using client-side
scripting). One question you could ask yourself, is when you want to
auto-submit a form generated by PHP, why generating the form at all and not
just process the input data at once?

When the goal of the form is to gather additional information (which it
usual is), just leave it up to the user to press the submit button when done
providing the required information.
