php from command line


I compiled php with apxs for apache support. I cannot however get it to run from the command line. I had hoped I could use it for some basic shell scripting as well. If I create a simple:

#! /usr/bin/php -q

<?php echo "test"; ?>

and execute it I get no output. Keep in mind that this is my first experience with a scripting language from the command line. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks
Tom

I don't think php can run outside a web server? You've to upload the homepage with the php code to your Apache directory, then run it from a browser for that to work. Or have I been dreaming again...

odious1, it works fine for me on Slackware 9.1, php version 4.3.6 (not my own pack, just an official Slackware one, ie. I didn't build it myself as I normally do). When you compiled it, did you use --enable-cli?

No I did not, if I recompile with that option I wonder if module function will remain intact. I do see that as one of the options of configure --help I will give it a try; thanks.

you can run a php script from the command line by using
Code:
#php file.php
