    Hello

    There seems to be no mention of SSL support, thus there
    is none?

    How big a task would it be to impliment SSL for
    'post'ing data to an SSL site?

    Thanks

    Terry

    PHP3 cannot not talk SSL nativley, therefore to make an SSL post you
    need to enlist the help of a little app called cURL.

    cURL is a command line driven app that accepts data and simulates
    posting a form to an SSL website. The data returned depends on the
    server we are posting to, although usually it is returned as a comma
    serperated line. cURL is called via the exec() command in PHP.

    Here is an example of a line that calls cURL.

    exec("/usr/local/bin/curl -m 120 -d \"$data\" https://$URL
    -L",$return_message_array, $return_number);

    ** NOTE ** The above line must NOT contain any line breaks, make sure
    its all on one line.

    -m is the timeout in seconds
    -d is the data you wish to post ($data="var=value&var1=value1")
    $URL is the https page you are posting to,

    The way i walk though the results is:

    for ($i = 0; $i < count($return_message_array); $i++ ) {
    $results = $results.$return_message_array[$i];
    }

    $results then contains all the data that was returned from the server.
