Or you can have the first php to generate an XML output. Then have the
second PHP call the first php. Read the XML from the second php. Done.
Programming is like Math. The is always more than one way to skin that cat

As a matter of preference, I prefer not exposing any data to the URL.
So I can either...
1) require() or include() the second page, so $HTTP_POST_VARS is
visible on the second page (George's idea)
2) create two utility functions and use sessioning to transfer data to
the next page (Jerry's idea)
