external processes without waiting for return

In php how do I call an external script or program without having php
waiting for the return?

exec and system both seem to wait for the return, I don't want this.

On *nix systems, try pushing it to the background:

exec("command &");

You can still use exec() or system(), but you need to modify your
command line. On Unix, you can add "&" to yout command line to
execute your request in the background. On Windows, you can put
"start" in front of your command line to launch a new instance
of command interpreter (type "help start" at your command prompt
for more information).

Cheers,
