Basic Filesize() call fails

P: n/a
I just CANNOT figure out what is wrong with this!

------

$op1f = fopen("./test.txt","r");
$op1 = fread($op1f, filesize($op1f));

------

my file text.txt is in the same dir as the php file. I get the
following errors on run:

------

Warning: filesize() [function.filesize]: stat failed for Resource id #3
in C:\Program Files\Apache
Group\Apache2\htdocs\php\php\pickone\php\index.php on line 11

Warning: fread() [function.fread]: Length parameter must be greater
than 0. in C:\Program Files\Apache
Group\Apache2\htdocs\php\php\pickone\php\index.php on line 11

------
I know it's something stupid I'm doing, but I simply can't figure it
out!

Thanks,

Read the manual page (http://nl2.php.net/filesize) carefully, It's
contains the prototype of filesize():
int filesize ( string filename )

Thus the only argument to filesize should be a string containing the
name of the file. You error reports that the argument passed in your
script is a resource and thus not a string.

BTW you lack any errorhandling, so an other error will appear to the
user in case eg test.txt doesn't exist or is not readable...
