ok.. php question
all i want to do is display the output of the route command on a webpage... 
now this is what i thought would be VERY simple in php, however im just not 
thinking about it right im sure.
nl2br(passthru(route));   i thought would be about all i needed so far i can 
get the results using various methods, however none of them allows me to use 
nl2br to make it display nice on a html page (convert all the \n to <br>).

what SIMPLE thing am i not thinking of.  passthru sends it direct to the 
browser no allowing any manipulation... exec only displays the last line of 

sample ways i have tried all appended into one php script.

echo $test;


ereg_replace("(\r\n|\n|\r)", "<br />", system(route));
