You actually use pack() and unpack() to prepare binary data to be written or to be 
read, see their manual entries.

There is no fonction in PHP to read or write an integer or a long value from a file.

Actually, I read a 2 or 4 characters string, and convert it into the corresponding 
numeric value with this function :

function readNum( $f, $len )
        $tmp = strrev( fread( $f, $len ) );
        $val = 0;
        for( $i=0; $i<$len; $i++ )
                $val += ord(substr($tmp,$i,1)) * pow(256,$len-1-$i);
        return $val;
