So you want to change pmwiki pages via a desktop application, but not
with a normal web-browser?

Do you mean you want to write a pmwiki page from your RPC application

'''[[{$PageAuthId}|{$AuthId}]]''': {$$shout} - [-''{(ftime fmt="%d/%m %H:%M")}''-] [[<<]]

(the content of the foxtemplate string)?
I still fail to see the connection to Fox.
Or perhaps I see that Fox is not relevant, as it is a script to
evaluate HTML form submissions and change PmWiki target pages
accordingly, i.e. it is a form processor. Nothing more.

do you need php functions which read  a wiki page content, add more
content, and save the new content back into the wiki page?
These functions are part of pmwiki.php, not fox.php, and we can
provide more details regards these.

Please correct me if I got your intentions wrong!
