Sorry, the note I previously added regarding fflush() has a bug!

when you read file by calling
$fp = fopen("myfile", "a+");

and you wish to read the content, you have to call
rewind($fp) before you attemp to read it. (Silly me) Or else if you tried something like
$fp = fopen("myfile", "a+");
$content = fread($fp);

// show that content is in fact null
if ($content == NULL)
print "but it must be first put to rewind<br>\n";

will result

but it must be first put to rewind.
[new line]

in fact, if you are not careful (like me), and you opened it with
$fp = fopen("myfile", "r+");
$content = fread($fp);
..
// do something with content
..
then you tried to again
$content = fread($fp);
without rewind, you'd get NULL again. This sounds trivial, but if you work with several file resources, with freads and fopens everywhere, you can get easily lost. So becareful.

Just a note that fflush takes care of the cache already, at least on my server.  Using clearstatcache before reading a previously written file also worked, but lagged the output time much more noticeably (by two or three seconds), probably due to excess cache erasing beyond files.
