I have several new web sites that use PHP heavily (all of our existing sites use Perl). All I want to be able to do is create a PHP template for output from a Perl program. Template is created, slurp the template into $var, replace with content using regexp, then print STDOUT "Content-type: text/html\n\n$var\n";
Problem is that <?php commands ?> are ignored when dumped this way. I've written the contents to a temp file and then output a html redirect, which works but is very messy and slow.
Is there a way to output to STDOUT but have the PHP processed?
Thanks for any help!

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
