That's odd, I would have expected $col1, $col2, and $col3 to be NULL.
That's what I get when I try to assign a string to list(). It expects
a PHP array.

You could tackle this in a couple of different ways. Either split your
string into an array first:

$line = fgets($handle);
$columns = explode(",", trim($line));
list($col1,$col2,$col3) = $columns;

Or look at using fgetcsv(), which will save you a step or two:
