I have a form and it passes two variables to a page called send.php.

The script works if I have no blankspaces in my text. But when i use blankspaces it sends blat.exe with no arguments.

<?

$subject = escapeshellcmd($_POST['subject']);
$text = escapeshellcmd($_POST['text']);

$blat = "blat.exe /log.txt -t olssone@tiscali.se -s ".$subject." -body ".$text;

$output = system("$blat");

echo nl2br($output);

?>

You probably need quotes around the subject and text otherwise the spaces will screw up the command line argument parsing.

$blat = "blat.exe /log.txt -t olssone@tiscali.se -s \"".$subject." \" \"".". -body ".$text." \"";
