I need to write a PHP program which can perform the following tasks:
1. read a HTML file from a given url, and generated another HTML using the content from the original HTML file.
I just wonder is fopen() is the only function can use in here?

you can use file() to grab local files if you can get your host to cache them for you , but at the end of the day the fun stuff is still going to be grabbing the content you want out of the file however you cache it. fopen()/fgets() etc are pretty good tools.
A basic example http://www.firepages.com.au/news.htm

You can use file() to get the contents of remote files. I used this when i made my guestbook. So what you could so it use file to grab the contents of a file.
then use it to do whatever you need in the rest of the script.
