$php_errormsgThe previous error message


This feature has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 7.2.0. Relying on this feature is highly discouraged.

Use error_get_last() instead.


$php_errormsg is a variable containing the text of the last error message generated by PHP. This variable will only be available within the scope in which the error occurred, and only if the track_errors configuration option is turned on (it defaults to off).


If a user defined error handler (set_error_handler()) is set $php_errormsg is only set if the error handler returns FALSE.


Example #1 $php_errormsg example

echo $php_errormsg;

The above example will output something similar to:

Wrong parameter count for strpos()
