$filefill = fread($fp, 100000000); //will take a long time on a very small file.

if you add another 0, it will cause a "Internal Server Error" - this is not 
surprising. computers dont deal well with BIG numbers.

i could not get php to re-create the error where it silently did not work.

Have you tried with PHP 4.0.6? And could you also 
add a short example script into this bug report?

fread does not look like it is reading the EOF. when i use a large (HUDGE) number to 
tell the fread() how many characters to read, it takes a  l o n g time for this to 
complete!!!! this happens even when the file is very short.

i descoverd this when i was trying to read an entire file into a string. is fread the 
best way to do this?? it does not seem to be working very well.

there is also a error reporting problem with fread. after the same number gets too 
big, php stops processing the entire page, (it does check syntax)
there is als no error message when this happens.....
