Hi,

those files are in binary format and cannot be read directly.

They form together with the other entries under /proc/<PID>
the information source for the various /usr/bin/proc* commands, such as

proccredprocfilesprocflagsproclddprocmapprocsigprocstackproctreeprocwdx

You could try them all out (as root) to see what they would show you.
Also man proc... gives useful information
