That just happened to me. Imagine a long running script writing to a database within a transaction. The script may time out or run out of memory, thus causing a PHP error that can’t be catched within a try catch/block. Yes, one could manually define an error handler with set_error_handler but I guess this is something that could be built right into the core. What do you guys think? I like the idea of errors being treated as exceptions that can always be catched and handled.
Ah, thanks Keith, didn’t see that. Yet another point to look forward to Yii 2.0 Very nice. Hope the new handler can also be configured to throw exceptions on warnings (deprecated warnings etc.). I guess this could be useful too
