PHP RFC: Stackable Error Handlers
- Version: 0.1
- Date: 2013-03-20
- Author: Ferenc Kovács, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Status: Draft
- First Published at: https://wiki.php.net/rfc/stackable_error_handler
This RFC tries to address the couple of feedback and possible shortcomings of the current error handler infrastructure, introducing a stackable error handler infrastructure, which can be used to extend or replace the default error handler using a stackable API where multiple error handlers can co-exist and only care about their own errors.
All the features and examples of the proposal.
To paraphrase Zeev Suraski, explain hows the proposal brings substantial value to be considered for inclusion in one of the world's most popular programming languages.
Remember that the RFC contents should be easily reusable in the PHP Documentation.
Backward Incompatible Changes
What breaks, and what is the justification for it?
Proposed PHP Version(s)
List the proposed PHP versions that the feature will be included in. Use relative versions such as “next PHP 5.x” or “next PHP 5.x.y”.
Describe the impact to CLI, Development web server, embedded PHP etc.
Impact to Existing Extensions
Will existing extensions be affected?
Describe any new constants so they can be accurately and comprehensively explained in the PHP documentation.
If there are any php.ini settings then list:
- hardcoded default values
- php.ini-development values
- php.ini-production values
Make sure there are no open issues when the vote starts!
Unaffected PHP Functionality
List existing areas/features of PHP that will not be changed by the RFC.
This helps avoid any ambiguity, shows that you have thought deeply about the RFC's impact, and helps reduces mail list noise.
This sections details areas where the feature might be improved in future, but that are not currently proposed in this RFC.
Proposed Voting Choices
Include these so readers know where you are heading and can discuss the proposed voting options.
Patches and Tests
Links to any external patches and tests go here.
If there is no patch, make it clear who will create a patch, or whether a volunteer to help with implementation is needed.
Make it clear if the patch is intended to be the final patch, or is just a prototype.

Keep this updated with features that were discussed on the mail lists.
