    Okay, how can I accomplish the above?

    I'm trying to take data within a PHP script, and send it via POST to a Perl script. Any help is *very* much appreciated!

    There are 3 ways:

    1) Access a URL like http://host/path/script.pl?querystring and discard the contents. Of course, the querystring would be the info you were passing.

    2) Open a socket to the HTTP server and write out the HTTP headers and POST info. You can read the HTTP RFCs to find out the protocol; just search Google. Or search google for a non-RFC page about the HTTP protocol.

    3) Use Unix Inter-process communication (IPC). I'm not sure if this is available for PHP, which is why you probably won't use it. But if you need to pass a ton of info, then use this.
