Like someone else said, this applies if PHP is compiled as a cgi and you can
run it from the command line.

If it's a module, you have to load up your page through a web browser to run
it. So for your command, you can use

lynx --dump

providing you have lynx installed. You can use wget, too. Your script
shouldn't produce any output unless you send it to a file or somewhere.
