Xtreme newbie: sending xml requests to server

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


PHP 4.4.2

$url = 'http://webservices.amazon.com/onca/xml?Service=AWSECommerceService '
. '&Operation=ItemSearch&Keywords=business'
. '&SearchIndex=Books'
. '&Sort=salesrank';

I want to execute the text string above and then store the return value in a
variable. My ISP do not support SOAP... but PEAR is installed. Do you have
any suggestion for how to send this data to the server or  functions that
you recommend me look up in the documention... ?

A little hint would be great!
