Yes, I was a bit lazy with my example, you would certainly need to include
a proper URL. Apart from that though, a script called in this manner
should output whatever it is supposed to, whether a text file or an email
or whatever.

I've just recently got a bit more serious with learning bash scripting and
am surprised at how powerful it really is, in conjunction with the usual
UNIX commands and other tools. PHP is the only choice for most things web
related, but I'm finding that bash is making my server admin tasks easier
and quicker. In fact, I'm currently working on a PHP code snippet manager
written in bash! If the idea has any legs, I might convert it over to
Python or something later ...
