(PHP 3 >= 3.0.3, PHP 4, PECL)
hw_GetRemote -- Gets a remote document
( int connection, int objectID )
Returns a remote document. Remote documents in Hyperwave notation
are documents retrieved from an external source. Common remote
documents are for example external web pages or queries in
a database. In order to be able to access external sources
through remote documents Hyperwave introduces the HGI (Hyperwave
Gateway Interface) which is similar to the CGI. Currently, only
ftp, http-servers and some databases can be accessed by the HGI.
Calling hw_getremote() returns the document from
the external source. If you want to use this function you should be
very familiar with HGIs. You should also consider to use PHP instead
of Hyperwave to access external sources. Adding database support
by a Hyperwave gateway should be more difficult than doing it in PHP.
