Would someone tell me how to close STDOUT?

I would like to do some jobs like
<?
   system("/usr/local/bin/php -q jobs.php");
?>
because I don't want it to wait for jobs.php done.

I see system() manual and know to redirect jobs.php's output
should be ok!
I tried system("..... > /dev/null") but fail (reasonable)
but I can't close STDOUT in job.php

if in perl, I can do
# job.php -> job.pl
#!/usr/bin/perl
   close(stdout);

but I don't know how to close/redirect STDOUT in php.
(I've search general maillist for this!)

Nog a bug in PHP. Support questions belong on the php-general@lists.php.net mailing list.

Yeah this would be handly especially if you are trying to 
prevent prints from libraries and sublibraries from fowling up a header when generating say pdf files from a script.. 
To redirect the stdout to /dev/null then when you need it, open the stdout up again and use it to dump the contents of a pdf.. This is what I'm trying to do now and I'm sure its a print statement that is futzing up the stdout. Rather than fix the code for this specific use it would be better just to be able to disable the stdout temporarily..
