Debuggable Blog:
Supressing Errors in PHP
January 30, 2009 @ 11:14:58

Felix Geisendorfer has posted two new items to the Debuggable blog looking at suppressing errors in your applications - and no, that doesn't mean using the @ operator either.

As of late I am getting sick of some best practices I have taught myself. Never using the @-error suppressing operator quickly moving to the top of the list. Before you start crying out loud (I know you will), let me say this: I do not mean to encourage anybody to use the @-operator. Applying the practice herein introduced may result in permanent damage to your coding habits and could serve as a gateway behavior to writing shitty code.

He gives an example in the first post of a place where he failed to properly check to ensure an element existed before checking a element of it. The second post provides an interesting solution to the same problem - using empty on the element/subelement to check its existence.
