Displaying Meaningful Error Messages when Auto Loading Classes in PHP 5
December 26, 2007 @ 11:56:00

DevShed has posted the next part of their series looking at handling errors thrown by the __autoload functionality of PHP. This time they enhance their previous method and allow for custom error messaging.

In this last article of the series I'm going to introduce some additional modifications to the current signature of the "__autoload()" function to make it throw exceptions that display more useful error messages.

They start by setting up the application to have something to build from (a series of PHP scripts). They add on the exception handling to throw the custom error (the "class not found" they mentioned).
