Is there a way to interact with external webpages

P: n/a
Hello,

I don't know if this can be done using php (I'm hoping). I need to
automate passing a variable from a text file to an external webapge
(that is not mine). Basically, simulate a user entering a number into
a textbox and then activate the submit button.

The webpage in question has a textbox named 'serial_number' and a
button named 'submit'. I would like to pass a numeric value to the
serial_number textbox and then activate the submit button. Can this
be done uisng php? If not, does anyone know of any method to do this?

Thank you so very much,

Daniel

Daniel,

You can do it with the Curl extensions.
