I was not careful when I wrote this "bug" and I forgot the quotes from the example...
As a matter of fact, The name of the file comes as string variable and nothing 
difference using quotes or no.
I am still very imazing...

You need to put quotes around a literal string like "example.txt", otherwise PHP 
thinks it's the concatenation of two strings "example" and "txt".

I have rather complicated architechture in my php-program (including a kind of 
In one php-file I tried to send an pdf-formatted file to the browser by using 
"readfile" -function. For my huge appointment it did not work well with "if" and 
"case" clauses. And the most imazing was that exactly same script worked in an other 
php-file (where the architecture was simplier). 
I give you a simple example how the "bug" behaves
if ($i==1)
  readfile(example.txt);  //and nothing happens
if ($i==1)
  readfile(example.txt);  //this worked well
  readfile(example.txt);  //this was just for debugging

As you see, it seems to be no sence at all!!! 
You propably think that I had somethin wrong with my code, but no, I and my work mate 
debugged this problem a half day and I am sure that this bug was just like I said.
I thought that I could have somethin wrong with the libraries but no error occurs...
The libraries are self made and working well in other programs.
