please can you clarify if you wish to retrieve PTV values from a
PmWiki page using not PmWiki, but a different external script,
or using a recipe script, which is included via config.php
and thereby part of PmWiki.

If you want to run not PmWiki, but some other application or
php script, then I don't know how this can be done. you would need
mechanisms in that script to open PmWiki files in order to read any
page content etc.
