Hi all,


I found this nice php script which uses an iphone barcode scanner to return the barcode EAN number in a URL. I want to pass it to an HTML form on another webpage. Does anyone know how to do this? I suspect its pretty simple im just very new to PHP and HTML.


Thanks in advance for any replies,





$code = $_REQUEST['ean'];
echo '<' . '?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?' . '>';
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN" "http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/xhtml-mobile10.dtd">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>test barcode reader</title>
<h1>test barcode reader</h1>
 if ( $code ) :
The barcode was <?php echo htmlentities( $code ); ?>
This web page is for iPhone users only and needs
<a href=""http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=308740640&mt=8">pic2shop</a>
installed (it is free), which allows third party web apps and iPhone apps to use its bar code reading software as a form of local web service.

I would put something like this on the third line right below the line that starts $code=

 if ( $code!='' ) {
header ("Location: http;//mydomain.com/myscript.php?code=$code");
