Read the file with the file function (http://www.php.net/file). This will
give you an array, with each element representing a line in the original
Pop the last element away (http://www.php.net/array_pop) twice. The second
time you do this, store the element you will gain (pop will return the
element it popped). There you have it...
$content = file(
array_pop( $content );
$current = array_pop( $content );
