                 $_POST["latitude"].",".$_POST["longitude"] : $_POST["city"];
$location = isset($_POST["ip"]) && $_POST["ip"] == "true" ? $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"] : $location;
// echo the result
echo file_get_contents("http://free.worldweatheronline.com/feed/weather.ashx?"
."q=". $location ."&"
."format=json&"
."num_of_days=". $_POST["days"] ."&"
