PHP Notices and How To Stop Them

PHP Notices and How To Stop Them
First of all, a notice is not the same as an error message. If your program causes an error message, the program will stop right there and will not finish. However, notices do not stop the program. The notice is printed to the browser and the program continues. There may be times when you want to stop these notices from displaying in the browser.

Here is a common example of a notice that you might get because you tried to use the $string variable that does not exists.

echo $string;

Notice: Undefined variable: string in C:\sokkit\site\test.php3 on line 2

Perhaps you are working on a program and you want to turn off this notice so you can continue working without recoding this problem area. You can prevent the notice from displaying in the browser by placing an @ sign at the location in the code where the notice would be generated. Just don't forget to go back and recode the problem area later!

echo @$string;
