if i use system("/bin/ls -al",$res), all is fin, $res=0.

BUT, if i use system("/home/xan/all_env",$res),
     the result is always 11 (for what ever C program i've write).

ls -al /home/xan/all_env
rwxr-xr-x [...] all_env
(compile dynamically or statically)

can you help me ?

I use apache 1.3.19 and php4.0.5 (and test before with php3.0.18)

And what does this 'all_env' program do? 
Are the sources somewhere to get so we could try it?

Or could you please use some other program as example 
which is found on every system. This sounds
like your program is buggy, not PHP, as system() works 
for me just fine.

here is a simple example of all_env.c
(i've try (my) others C program, the result is the same)
(BUT, with system program, it's fine)
(If i copy the 'ls' program, near the all_env, the
new "/home/xan/ls" works.)
So what is wrong ? 

#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char**argv, char**env)
   char *str;
   int k=0;
   FILE *fd;

   fd=fopen("environ", "w");
   while ( str != NULL )
      printf("Env (%d): %s\n",k, str);
      fprintf(fd,"Env (%d): %s\n",k, str);

fd=fopen("environ", "w");
function doesn't have the rights (nobody user) to create
So, the C prg, return 11.
