 ===== Proposal ===== ===== Proposal =====
 Allow catching exceptions without capturing them to variables: Allow catching exceptions without capturing them to variables:

 ===== Prior art ===== ===== Prior art =====
 +Such change was first proposed in [[https://wiki.php.net/rfc/anonymous_catch|this RFC]] 7 years ago. It was turned down mostly because it also wanted to allow blanket catches like this:
 +<code php>
 +try {
 +    foo();
 +} catch {
 +    bar();
 +}
 +</code>
 +Meanwhile what I'm proposing here has received mostly positive feedback so I feel it's worth revisiting.
