<?php
$info 
= new SplFileInfo('foo.txt');
var_dump($info->getFilename());

$info = new SplFileInfo('/path/to/foo.txt');
var_dump($info->getFilename());

$info = new SplFileInfo('http://www.php.net/');
var_dump($info->getFilename());

$info = new SplFileInfo('http://www.php.net/svn.php');
var_dump($info->getFilename());
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

string(7) "foo.txt"

It should be mentioned that the function returns the name of the directory if "filename" is of type "directory". Hence

<?php
$info
= new SplFileInfo('/path/to/');
var_dump($info->getFilename());
?>

should return "to"

The function name is kind of misleading here and I am glad to have it tried.
