The thing to look for, is how did you get $inputfile out of the
command line, and why you'd expect the file name to be in $argv[1] at
that point? Marco's suggestion isn't really going to work as
$inputfile will be a file handle, and filesize() needs the name of the
file. Maybe want to give us a wider look at what your code is doing?

Generically, you can wrap this up as:

 function binread_file($filename)
   $handle = fopen($filename,'rb');
   if (FALSE === $handle) die("Unable to open $filename");
   $contents = fread($handle, filesize($filename));
   if (FALSE === $contents) die("Unable to read $filename");
   return $contents;
