:)    i've writen 777 as an example that i can create any thing and destroye
anything from a web based php script.

it doesn't!

We tried it and it works if we call it from a command line, but as soon as
we call the perl from php it doesn;'t works

Thanks, i guess we are now going to make a perl or c program that will be
executed by a deamon/cron (donno yet) I don't see how i could do it other
wise. One thing i am sure now is that it wont be possible to do it directly
from a browser.
