PEAR Manual


PEAR::raiseError() -- Create a new PEAR_Error object and optionally specify error-handling instructions




string $message

Error message. The default message is "unknown error" if left blank.

integer $code

Error code. It is recommended to use an error code for even the simplest errors, in order to simplify error handling and processing.

integer $mode

Error mode. This is one of PEAR_ERROR_RETURN, PEAR_ERROR_PRINT, PEAR_ERROR_TRIGGER, PEAR_ERROR_DIE, PEAR_ERROR_CALLBACK, or PEAR_ERROR_EXCEPTION. See setErrorHandling() for detailed information and examples of the meaning of these constants.

mixed $options

Error options. This depends on the value of $mode, and is documented in setErrorHandling().

mixed $userinfo

Optional user information. This can be used to store any error-specific information, and has an unspecified format.

string $error_class

Error class name to use as the error object. The default error class is PEAR_Error. Use this parameter to specify another class to use, such as a custom class extending PEAR_Error

boolean $skipmsg

Use this parameter if you are using a custom class that does not accept an error message in its constructor. Never use this parameter without the $error_class parameter - it will not work.

Return value

A PEAR_Error object is returned, unless PEAR_ERROR_DIE terminates execution or a PEAR_ERROR_EXCEPTION is never handled.
