Thanks, but I tried this. Doesn't work because the path\to\gammu.exe has spaces in it.... Haliphax, thanks for your comments. I tried escapeshellarg() to no end.
I'm exploring your reply regarding proc_open, but how exactly does proc_open separate the arguments from the command? Unless i'm mistaken, data written to the process's stdin (for the other process) is not treated like an argument. If I add the arguments to the process name/path? I'm back to square one.
