Checks whether the specified file is readable by PHP. Note that depending on how the script is executed (command line, CGI, module), the test may be performed with varying user IDs, so permissions may affect the result of the function. Safe mode restrictions are not taken into account. Note: The results of this function are cached. See clearstatcache() for details.

$file = "testfile";

    // open and read from file
    echo ("Cannot read from file $file.");
