we have an existing system developed. There is a binary file api which needs to be executed. The file can be run from the actual server and works fine, however when we call the file using exec commands etc within PHP, nothing happens.
The system is coded in PHP,
i need the following done:
1. A script to be written to :
a) execute a unix shell script from perl. Then via the shell script to run the api.
This shouldnt take too long, maybe 2/3 hours to do. We currently outsource alot of work to India, and the person that assists with this will be added on our team as the pearl php developer for future projects.
The work is immediate.
