    Converting to WAP


    I would like to convert some of my php scripts so that I can access them from my wireless phone. Where can I find some programs that will convert PHP to WAP?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure that you can convert php to wap. If I understand you correctly, what you mean is that you want to convert the html in your php files to wap (or wml - tha language used for wap)?

    Although WAP supports HTML and XML, the WML language (an XML application) is specifically devised for small screens and one-hand navigation without a keyboard. WML is scalable from two-line text displays up through graphic screens found on items such as smart phones and communicators. WAP also supports WMLScript. It is similar to JavaScript, but makes minimal demands on memory and CPU power because it does not contain many of the unnecessary functions found in other scripting languages.
    You do not need to convert your php, just the language that you insert in your php. If I were you I would find a site that lists all the wml tags, which are limited when compared to html. As far as I know there aren't any programs which convert html to wml.

    I hope that helps.
