squid custom authentication

I have so far been running squid using the basic ncsa auth.
I now need to add some custom authentication for ncsa auth and also an IP address.
I would like to do this using a PHP script.
How can I check the ncsa auth file in the script:

if (! defined(STDIN)) {
        define("STDIN", fopen("php://stdin", "r"));
while (!feof(STDIN)) {
        $line = trim(fgets(STDIN));
        $fields = explode(' ', $line);
        $username = rawurldecode($fields[0]); //1738
        $password = rawurldecode($fields[1]); //1738
        #I need to check the squid_passwd file here?????
        #how can PHP read the squid_passwd file, is it just a case of going through it line
        #by line
        if ($username == 'hello' 
            and $password == 'world') {
                fwrite(STDOUT, "OK\n");
        } else {
                // failed miserably
                fwrite(STDOUT, "ERR\n");
