The PHP break statement takes an optional level parameter, which indicates how many levels of loop structure to break out. Example code: <?php for ($i = 0; $i < 5; $i++) { for (... It's a fatal error if the level parameter exceeds the maximum number of enclosing loop structures. For example, " break 3; " in above code.

These error level constants are defined in PHP : Constant Value Description E_ERROR 1 Fatal run-time errors. Execution of the script is halted. E_WARNING 2 (1<<1) Run-time warnings (non-fatal errors). Execution of the script is not halted. E_PARSE 4 (1<<2) Compile-time parse errors. Parse errors should only be generated by the parser. E_NOTICE 8 (1<<3) Notices. Indicate that the script encountered something that could indicate an error, but could also happen in the normal course of running a script. E_CORE_ERROR 16 (1<<4) Fatal errors that occur during PHP's initial startup. This is like an E_ERROR, except it is generated by the core of PHP. E_CORE_WARNING 32 (1<<5) Warnings (non-fatal errors) that occur during PHP's initial startup. This is like an E_WARNING, except it is generated...

Outputs: Class A has method f1: bool(true) Object $a has... Also note that C++-like method overloading does not exist in PHP. Thus there's no ambiguity about which version of the method exists, i.e., with no argument, with one argument... etc. The following code generates Fatal error: <?php class A { var $p = 'A property'; ...

When developing in PHP, it's frustrating to have errors in the code but no error message displays. According to the PHP manual, the display_errors setting controls whether errors are displayed. You can either change it in php.ini : ; This directive controls whether or not and where... or set it in your code: <?php ini_set('display_errors', 'On'); fsdlf... But when you have syntax errors in your code, the ini_set function may not even get a chance to execute. So the only reliable way is to set it in php.ini : <?php // nothing gets displayed when display_er...
