I am trying to make a PHP file/page that will prompt other programs. Simple as that.
I would like user input from the internet (to include upload of a file)... to initiate an otherwise offline program... manipulate the information (file)... and then return it to the user for download as a newer, tweaked version of the original.
I know it can be done, albeit Im not sure with PHP or Perl. I dont know a shred of Perl. I do know PHP quite well, however, but have never needed nor come by the information I currently need.
Any help would be appreciated.
