Have a look at http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.commandline.php

The easiest thing of course would be to just call lynx (or any other command line 
browser taht is able to do a HTTP request and exit (that's why the "-dump")) within 
your cron table, e.g.:

0 23 * * * lynx -dump localhost/path/to/some/php/robot.php > /dev/null

mit freundlichen Gruessen / yours sincerely
