Hi,

From just guessing whan that function does I would probably go with exec which executes an external program.

Was this what you we're trying to accomplish?

Hi... i have a problem in php. i wrote a code to generate notepad
exec("notepad.exe"); and when i call this page in the browser it works, but when i call the page from another system using my systems ip address the notepad is generated on my system(the system in which i wrote the code) , not on the system from which i called the page. why is it so ? is this due to any permission problem of windows..

please give a solution for this

Hi,

I'm not quite sure, haven't used it that much. There are a couple of other functions that can be called (link to them can be found on the exec-function page).

Good Luck
