Made it possible!  It's not hard at all when you have a function to control command-line PHP and capture output  :)

See the template on the right and the resulting output in Mozilla on the left.

Unfortunately you have to use $args to pass variables into command line PHP, and running it like this clearly removes the possibility of running SMF or something.

Change "C:\program files\FHFS\php-bin\php.exe" in the script below to your correct PHP path, and place it under [request] in hfs.events.

Code: [Select]
{.set|php|{:{.if|{.exists|$1.php.}|{:{.exec|"C:\program files\FHFS\php-bin\php.exe" -n -f "C:\Program Files\FHFS\$1.php" $2|out=out.}:}|{:{.exec|"C:\program files\FHFS\php-bin\php.exe" -n -r "$1"|out=out.}:}.}{.^out.}:}.} {.comment| PHP FUNCTION $1 IS SCRIPT FILENAME OR DIRECT COMMANDS, $2 IS ARGUMENTS TO PASS IF SCRIPT FILE .}

most things published on this board (programmers corner) won't be understandable by those who are not programmers.

he is suggesting a way to interface programmatically with HFS.
it's not exactly a fast method, but it may be enough for some purposes.

Rejetto is right.  That won't be possible until PHP is implemented directly into HFS.  This method is only for simple PHP commands or in-line scripts.  Each command takes roughly 0.07 seconds, so loading up a page with tons of php commands will make a very slow page.  What you can do with this is very limited, but it still opens up a few possibilities.  

That being said, if you were to take the time to reprogram a PHP script to use just argument variables in place of URL Variables, posted variables, and cookies, then it could theoretically be possible, but not practical.
