Please keep threads on the list.

Try forgetting about the the -r and the -q and just do php  
buildMetarDB.php ...

Thank you Chuck.

I have tried this (I had to add the -r, since I am using unix sockets):
     php -r unix -q buildMetarDB.php -a -t mysql -d horde -u horde -p horde
It gives me:
     PHP Parse error:  parse error, unexpected $ in Command line code on
line 1

I have been looking at the buildMetarDB.php file (I am no php programmer
though!).  This is where I found the -r switch.  But, I also noticed
that there is a ctrl+M at the end of every line in the file.  Since I am
using BSD, I thought that maybe this was the problem.  I stripped it out
using vi, and I still get the same error.  I copied it to a linux box,
opened it in kwrite and changed the end of line to unix, and it still
gives me the error.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks again.
