trigger_error --  Generates a user-level error/warning/notice message


void trigger_error (string error_msg [, int error_type])

Used to trigger a user error condition, it can be used by in conjunction with the built-in error handler, or with a user defined function that has been set as the new error handler (set_error_handler()). This function is useful when you need to generate a particular response to an exception at runtime. For example:

if (assert ($divisor == 0))
   trigger_error ("Cannot divide by zero", E_USER_ERROR);

Note: See set_error_handler() for a more extensive example.
