Method describe_error()

Method describe_error

string describe_error(mixed err)


Return the error message from an error object or array (typically caught by a catch). The type of the error is checked, hence err is declared as mixed and not object|array.

If an error message couldn't be obtained, a fallback message describing the failure is returned. No errors due to incorrectness in err are thrown.
