PHP Functions

Function: error_reporting

(PHP 3, PHP 4, PHP 5)

error_reporting -- Sets which PHP errors are reported

Description

int error_reporting ( [int level] )

The error_reporting() function sets the error_reporting directive at runtime. PHP has many levels of errors, using this function sets that level for the duration (runtime) of your script.

Parameters

level

The new error_reporting level. It takes on either a bitmask, or named constants. Using named constants is strongly encouraged to ensure compatibility for future versions. As error levels are added, the range of integers increases, so older integer-based error levels will not always behave as expected.

The available error level constants are listed below. The actual meanings of these error levels are described in the predefined constants .

Table 1. error_reporting() level constants and bit values

value constant 1 E_ERROR 2 E_WARNING 4 E_PARSE 8 E_NOTICE 16 E_CORE_ERROR 32 E_CORE_WARNING 64 E_COMPILE_ERROR 128 E_COMPILE_WARNING 256 E_USER_ERROR 512 E_USER_WARNING 1024 E_USER_NOTICE 2047 E_ALL 2048 E_STRICT

Return Values

Returns the old error_reporting level.

Examples

Example 1. error_reporting() examples

<?php

// Turn off all error reporting
error_reporting(0);

// Report simple running errors
error_reporting(E_ERROR | E_WARNING | E_PARSE);

// Reporting E_NOTICE can be good too (to report uninitialized
// variables or catch variable name misspellings ...)
error_reporting(E_ERROR | E_WARNING | E_PARSE | E_NOTICE);

// Report all errors except E_NOTICE
// This is the default value set in php.ini
error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE);

// Report all PHP errors (bitwise 63 may be used in PHP 3)
error_reporting(E_ALL);

// Same as error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('error_reporting', E_ALL);

?>

Notes

Warning

With PHP > 5.0.0 E_STRICT with value 2048 is available. E_ALL does NOT include error level E_STRICT . Most of E_STRICT errors are evaluated at the compile time thus such errors are not reported in the file where error_reporting is enhanced to include E_STRICT errors.
