PHP and Rev CGI

A couple of quick thoughts:

1) PHP has a few commands - exec(), system() and passthru() which do  
similar things in terms of calling an external program. Documentation  
on is quite good - just browse there and type in the command  
name in the search box.

2) If the Rev process is long-running (aka "background process"), you  
can communicate via sockets. Pierre has previously posted some  
scripts for this which work well.

Hope that gives you a jump start!
