Re: Simple error handling/catching/avoidance

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



That bit of obvious error-generating code was also just an example of something that would definitely generate an error/exception, since current actual issue is that am meant to be using/operating within someone else's sort of containing framework/wrappers, and means can't always be sure what code will work, or generate an error, etc., and just don't want to have to specifically check for all function definitions using function_exists(), etc. etc., but anyway.

Also just that, in most other languages, there is some or other, relatively simple way to handle something like a try - catch exception - and just perform some other action methodology, so was just wondering...?

It's the reason why I can't stand exceptions in PHP, we talked about this a bunch at our meeting on Wednesday.

You still have to suppress the error through one of several methods (using @ or custom error handler that does not display it)

AND then you have to throw an exception manually.

I fact, I don't even know how you would write one for that type of error. Live to hear some more input.

Just wondering why the following code actually renders an error message instead of just then invoking the catch clause:

//start code
$iVar1 = 0;
$iVar2 = 10;
try {
echo $iVar2 / $iVar1;
} catch (Exception $e) {
echo "No division by zero allowed";
//end of code
