After banging my head off a wall for two days with AOLserver getting file
uploading working, (turned out to be a small bug in AOLserver that Harry
here fixed in 30 mins), I turned my attention to a problem in PHP. Turns
out that we thought it would be nice to tack the news headlines onto the
webmail login screen. Hmm. I thought. How do I do that ?
PHP's massive ridiculously great API lets me do:
$news_index = fopen("http://www.online.ie/sp/newsindex.adp?heading=no","r");
fpassthru() takes a filehandle, and spews it to the screen. I was
thinking of doing it the way I would in C (while ! EOF, read, then write
etc). Sigh. I love PHP.
