PHP-Coding-Practices.com:
Try-Catch Syntax Weirdness
June 22, 2007 @ 13:28:00

In working with his code recently, Tim Koschuetzki noticed something odd with a block of try/catch code:

I just noticed today, that PHP's try catch blocks require curly braces. Anybody has an idea why it is like that? I have used curly braces by default up until now, so I just stumbled upon this weirdness today.

He includes two examples, one with a curly brace after the catch clause and the other without. This is different than several other control structures (like ifs) that don't require the curly brace when there's only the one line following it.
