trigger_error

Generates a user-level error/warning/notice message (PHP 4 >= 4.0.1, PHP 5)
bool trigger_error ( string error_msg [, int error_type] )

Used to trigger a user error condition, it can be used by in conjunction with the built-in error handler, or with a user defined function that has been set as the new error handler (set_error_handler()).

This function is useful when you need to generate a particular response to an exception at runtime.

The designated error message for this error. It's limited to 1024 characters in length. Any additional characters beyond 1024 will be truncated.

error_type

The designated error type for this error. It only works with the E_USER family of constants, and will default to E_USER_NOTICE.

Return Values

This function returns FALSE if wrong error_type is specified, TRUE otherwise.
