>You know that "dot" files are hidden files ? ...
Yes, but I think this only is in contexts where directories are scanned by
some application "respecting" this method of hiding - and that they
otherwise are normal files when addressed explicitly.
However, there seems to be something else about dotfiles and PHP (or
FreeBSD or my particular systems) I don't know.

Interesting idea. I will play with that.

Until something is clearer I recommend PHP-people using
require '.mydotfile'; or
include '.mydotfile'; (I tried that as well)
to watch out for unexpected behavior and maybe entirely avoid this in
PHP-solutions intended to be portable. At least at my computer it wouldn't
work and it is a very mainstream one! :-)

BTW - there is no problem if I give the full path, like

Thanks to all for testing and suggestions.
