hi all,

if i have a php web application that requires logon,
and i have a userid for that application.
is it possible to write a local php script, that will login
to the application and will do actions inside this application without
opening the pages in the web-browser? (that my script will emulate
a user activating the application from within the browser..)

or even better, is it possible to activate locally the functions
that are defined in the remote scripts?

You can certainly make calls to a web application without a browser, but I'm not aware of a way to do it with PHP that doesn't involve a browser unless you use the compiled version of PHP. I'd personally suggest using another system-based piece of software that has the ability to send headers to do the job.
