Heh. File handling must be a bit different in Perl :-) Your code above 
doesn't use the file descriptor (or file handle, if you prefer, or file 
pointer) that is returned by the fopen function.

1 <?php
2 $file = "news.txt";
3 $fp = fopen ($file, "r");
4 $fs = filesize ($file);
5 while (!feof($fp))
6 {
7    $content = (fgets ($fp, $fs));
8 }
9 ?>

However, you might be as well off to use the file() function to read the 
file into an array; you can then process the array with list/each and 
write it out line by line.
