If this is your first go at command-line PHP, there might a couple of other things you need which can be tricky to find out.
If you want to run the command like this:
$ mything optionsYou need
The file to be findable: call your file 'mything' and put it in a place in your path: typically ~/bin/mything or more rarely /usr/local/bin/mything
The file to be executable: chmod 775 ~/bin/mything
File must begin with special 'hash-bang' line: #!/usr/bin/php
Your options are accessible in the array $argv
Example file in ~/bin/showargv
?>And this is it running
$ showargv one two three
 => /home/username/bin/showargv
 => one
 => two
 => three
)Hope this helps someone.
