PHP - Function error_reporting()

Definition and Usage
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.
|Sr.No||Parameter & Description|
Optional. Specifies the error report level for the current script. Value number and constant name are accepted, however, constant names are recommended for compatibility for future PHP versions. The available error level constants are listed below.
|1||E_ERROR||Fatal run-time errors. Errors that cannot be recovered from. Execution of the script is halted|
|2||E_WARNING||Non-fatal run-time errors. Execution of the script is not halted|
|4||E_PARSE||Compile-time parse errors. Parse errors should only be generated by the parser|
|8||E_NOTICE||Run-time notices. The script found something that might be an error, but could also happen when running a script normally|
|16||E_CORE_ERROR||Fatal errors at PHP startup. This is like an E_ERROR in the PHP core||4|
|32||E_CORE_WARNING||Non-fatal errors at PHP startup. This is like an E_WARNING in the PHP core||4|

Following is the usage of this function −
<?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 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); ?>
