anyone knows how to combine both php n perl together? and run them at the same time?
Yep, that’s possible. In separate files though.
how do i do tat? do i just link them both together?
what are u trying to do?
u may as well execute the one script inside the other one an fetch the output.
i submit a file up to grid mp server for rendering
it’ll runs a perl script and i wan to do php codes to insert the datas into mysql database
so how do i link perl script with php to do the codes?
i’m still not sure if i got u 100%.
this is how i understood it:
u have a perl-script witch uploads and renders a file.
u want have some more data that u wanna fetch, process and store with php.
if that’s right, what i would do is:
Use a PHP script that gets all the data including the file.
rewrite the perlscript a littlebit to exept a local input file as parameter and to output plain text instead of html.
And then i would use PHP to procces all the data, and call the perl-script with exec() to do the rendering.
hope this helps a bit
is it possible to tell me how to link php after executing perl scripts?
You can do this using HTTP headers.
Example sent header like:
Alternative is to use exec(), both languages support and handle third party program executions.
I wouldn’t recommend using exec() in ANY case though, as it runs outside your server software (afaik) and directly on your OS, posing a serious security issue if you don’t have everything neatly secured (and considering the questions you’re asking, I doubt you have a waterproof setup. nofi).
