PHP 101 (part 12): Bugging Out
Find out how to handle errors in your PHP 5.x scripts.

| Fire-Proofing Your Code |

Even the best developers make mistakes sometimes. That's why most programming languages - including PHP - come with built-in capabilities to catch errors and take remedial action. This action can be as simple as displaying an error message, or as complex as sending the site administrator an email with a complete stack trace.

To make it easier to do this, PHP comes with a full-featured error handling API that can be used to trap and resolve errors. In addition to deciding which types of errors a user sees, you can also replace the built-in error handling mechanism with your own custom (and usually more creative) functions. If you're using PHP 5, you get a bonus: a spanking-new exception model, which lets you wrap your code in Java-like try-catch() blocks for more efficient error handling.

In this edition of PHP 101, I'm going to discuss all these things, giving you a crash course in how to add error-handling to your PHP application. Keep reading - this is pretty cool stuff!
