php ignore html

Posted by stockton (stockton), 11 August 2007
One can in Linux prefix a script with:-
#!/usr/bin/php -q
and then run the script from the command line & the -q tells PHP to leave all HTML out.
How can this be done in Microsoft Windows?

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 12 August 2007
I think that the -q option has been deprecated - recent PHP versions simply recognise whether you're running via a web page or directly.

On a Microsoft platform, I would initially try taking a command line window and simply type in the path to the executable followed by the name of the file of PHP.
