i would like to send data from a C++ application to a php script i am creating that will then put it into a mysql database after manipuating it a bit.

If you don't get what i mean then think of it like this. An HTML form can be used to post data to a php script, but instead of HTML i need c++.


You can have either the php script execute a popen and read from the spawned process or have your C++ program spawn the PHP script and write to its standard input (or use any other formal IPC method). As far as setting environment variables (such as $_GET, $_POST and the like), I'm not so sure that will be so easy. You probably want to see how the browser is communicating with the php script and mimic that.
