Handling fatal error in PHP with register_shutdown_function

PHP 5.2.0 bring us a new function : error_get_last()

It return an associative array describing the last error with keys "type", "message", "file" and "line" about the last error that occurred.

We can now use it with register_shutdown_function to handle fatal error, log, redirect, html page, instead of the infamous white page.

 * Handling fatal error
 * @return void
function fatalErrorHandler()
    # Getting last error
    $error = error_get_last();
    # Checking if last error is a fatal error 
    if(($error['type'] === E_ERROR) || ($error['type'] === E_USER_ERROR))
         # Here we handle the error, displaying HTML, logging, ...
         echo 'Sorry, a serious error has occured in ' . $error['file'];
# Registering shutdown function
