After being tasked with some code that was filled with the suppression character (@) all over, Johannes Schluter decided to take matters into his own hands and write an extension to disable it.

That's annoying. So I wrote a simple extension disabling this operator. That helped. I then proposed that extension to pecl, while doing that I found out that Gopal has written a similar extension before. After short discussions we added that extension, using the name scream to pecl and released the extension there.

Documentation for the extension has already been added to the PHP manual for the "Break the Silence" operator. By enabling the setting (either in your php.ini or via an ini_set) turning on "scream_enabled", any use of the suppression operator (@) will be nulled out and all according error messages will be displayed.
