In addition to the other worthy solutions, there is a "posttohost" function out there that Rasmus wrote ages ago in PHP. It will let you POST any data you like to any web-form you can visit. Quite handy. :-) Google for "Rasmus Lerdorf and PostToHost" -- Like Music? http://l-i-e.com/artists.htm -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
