I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to do the following using php:
I have a website that uses php to display database information. Now,
I'd like to be able to implement another capability and that is I'd like to write a new php web page and launch a thread which executes a binary and have the output be displayed on the web page live (if possible).
I think I need to use ajax to be able to refresh the page in order to show "live output" in the page.
The problem I'm having is figuring out if I can launch a thread that executes a binary and display the output on the webpage. Is that possible? If so, how?
