$output = exec("echo hello");
echo "$output";

...will nothing display!
(that's wrong!)

$output = exec("echo hello > hello.txt");

...will create a file named hello.txt with the value hello.
(that's fine.)

So the function exec() works properly but it gives no value back. The same problem occures in the function system() or in the backticks.

I'm using Windows 2000 with IIS.

This should be fixed in 4.0.6

$output = exec("any_other_program.exe");
echo "$output";

...will nothing display, too.
(it's not an echo-problem!)
