Can PHP be executed within a web document created by a PERL CGI script?

How does one accomplish this?
Can anyone provide a checklist?

The answer is yes, but more details are needed.

If you want a Perl script to execute a PHP script that's on the same server, then you can call it using the system() function, or something similar.

If they're on different servers, then the Perl code needs to hit the URL of the PHP script and print the output.

Or if you mean can a Web *document* execute a PHP script, regardless of whether or not it was generated by Perl, then you can use any method that will let you include an external URL, like <iframe>.
