well i know the command shell_exec(), that work like console, just put de command as paramether. More info in php documentation.
For COM objects for example, $word = new COM("word.application") or die("Unable to instantiate application object"); $wordDocument = new COM("word.document") or die("Unable to instantiate document object"); $word->Visible = 0; $wordDocument = $word->Documents->Open($DocumentPath); $HTMLPath = substr_replace($DocumentPath, 'txt', -3, 3); $wordDocument->SaveAs($HTMLPath, 3); $wordDocument = null; $word->Quit(); $word = null; this opens a word document and save it as .txt document. there should be more info in the MSDN documentation. 2009/8/8 Robert Cummings <rob...@interjinn.com> > pete123456 wrote: > >> hi, >> im running php on IIS and im trying to evaluate php's capabilities >> regarding >> external interfaces. >> elg. executing .exe, batch files, com objects. is that all possible? does >> anyone have any good reference where i can find out more about this? >> > > .exe and .bat files should work fine, the do for me.
