You can use exec(), system() or passthru(), but they will open the program on the actual server, not on the clients machine.
: Hi all,
: I've been a PHP programmer for about two years now and I need to know if there is a way to open up an external program(an Engineering software program) when you click on a specific button. I was wondering if there was a function somewhere in PHP or if you guys know if this is even possible. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks guys.
