If the value is passed to your script as a command line argument then
it's stored as $1 in bash. Excuse my pseudo-php below

$last_line = system('/path/to/yourscript $variable', $retval);

/path/to/yourscript --

echo $1 | /usr/local/bin/gnokii --sendsms <mobile Number>

If what you're passing includes spaces or special characters, enclose
"$variable" in quotes.
