The first part of this article demonstrated basic errorhandling in PHP, explaining the various error types and illustrating theprocess of building a custom error handler. But that's just the tip ofthe iceberg - this concluding part goes a step further, showing you totrigger your own errors, and log error messages to a file, database oremail address.
And that's about it from me. In this two-part article, you learned how to use PHP's error-handling API to exert fine-grained control over the way the language handles errors. You learned how to control the display of specific error types, how to customize the manner in which they're handled, and how to raise errors of your own. Next, you learnt how to log errors, write them to a file and email them out to all and sundry. And, as if all that wasn't enough, the final section of this article demonstrated the process of creating a robust, scalable error-handling system for a Web application.
