PHP, COM, and Linux

Hello,

Given that COM can be used to interact with MS-Office applications from
within PHP, and that Linux now has similar applications such as the ones
which come with OpenOffice, is it possible to use PHP's COM applications
to interact with OpenOffice.

Also, what does the PHP code end up doing if there is no COM support
on the platform where the user is running the web browser and how can
I detect whether the client host supports COM from within a PHP script?

Thanks,

Neil

function_exists('com_invoke') should do the trick.
