Oh duh.  Before I was passing the whole URL and there must be some kind
of security measure in place so that users can't view the code of remote
scripts.  That makes sense.  It's working fine using the relative path
on the local directory which is all I need.

<? //peekaboo.php
if (isset($script))
        $fp = fopen($script, "r");
        while (!feof($fp))
                $out .= fread($fp, 100000);
                $out = $out."\n";

header("Content-type: text/html");
echo "Now display source code for: $script<br>";
echo "<textarea cols=50 rows=10>$out</textarea>";

This works..
<p><a href="peekaboo.php?script=myscript.php">View Source for

This doesn't work..
<p><a href="peekaboo.php?script=http://www.mydomain/myscript.php";>View
Source for Myscript.php</a>

Thanks for your help.  It's always the little things that'll get ya.  :)
