Thanks for the idea. I am not sure what you mean by "permissions output" but it is same owner and an "ls -la" gives -rwxr-xr-x 1 frank wheel 27 Apr 29 23:05 .mydotfile.php -rwxr-xr-x 1 frank wheel 0 Apr 29 23:08 myfile.php - - - I BTW forgot to tell that I am on PHP 4.1.1 BTW - if I introduce syntax errors in .mydotfile they are ignored - it is like PHP does not read the content at all. But take away the leading dot and it is all as expected. Mystified!
