PHP has a CLI mode (command line interpreter).

You can use argv and argc like from any other language. Just check if the
arguments are set, and then process things normally, and spit the output,
perhaps without HTML markup.

The same script can then be used from a web based application or command

See more here http://ca.php.net/features.commandline

And make sure you sanitize the input. Never trust use input in web
application. NEVER!
