Please forgive me if I'm missing something, but it seems as though SplFileObject has most of the useful file functions except fread.  Having that available would be Really Good?.

SplFileObject is a line iterator, that is it reads the next line on current() and friends. Introducing fread would mean one would need to cound the '\n's after reading some bytes. That said it would be ok to read the remainder as from the object since then valid() would return true and the number of lines wouldn't matter. An alternative would be allowing to skip line counting. However right now fread() in its current forma does not make sense.

I see ... thanks for the quick reply. So is it fair to say, then, that SplFileObject isn't suitable for reading a binary file?

Thanks again,

Yes, maybe we can implement a SplBinaryFileObject class. That would have all those functions. Actually an interesting idea.

As of PHP 5.5.11 SplFileObject::fread() is available, so this
ticket can be closed.
